‘Delius in Japan’ -
with violinist Midori Komachi and BBC Radio 3's Nick Luscombe

Violinist Midori Komachi discusses her Japanese translation of Eric Fenby’s classic book of recollections, ‘Delius as I Knew Him’, and her experiences of performing Delius in Japan in conversation with BBC Radio 3 broadcaster, Nick Luscombe, 
plus live performances from Midori and pianist Simon Callaghan.

“The most interesting publishing project at the moment”, according to the Delius Trust, is a Japanese translation of Fenby's ‘Delius as I Knew Him’ by violinist, Midori Komachi. NHK - the Japanese equivalent of the BBC - is making a documentary about Midori’s fascination for the music of Delius and her translation project, for which they have filmed at the Delius Trust.

Following her acclaimed project on ‘Delius and Gauguin’, Midori Komachi will give a unique perspective on Delius’s impact on Japanese audiences and will be joined by Nick Luscombe (from BBC Radio 3’s ‘Late Junction’), who is currently collaborating with her on Anglo-Japanese projects.  The discussion will be followed by a live recital performed by Midori Komachi (violin) and Simon Callaghan (piano), to include performances of Delius’s Sonata in B major (Op. Posth.), Sonata No.3, and Midori’s own arrangement of ‘To be sung of a Summer Night on the Water’.

Delius's Piano Concerto - 
with pianist, Mark Bebbington


To coincide with his new recording of the Delius Piano Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jan Latham Koenig for the SOMM label, pianist Mark Bebbington discusses Delius’s Piano Concerto and also performs the Three Preludes and 'On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring' for piano duet, with pianist Irene Loh, in the transcription by Peter Warlock.  Mark’s talk will be illustrated with extracts from the recording and the new CD will be on sale.


Internationally recognised as a champion of British music in particular, Mark has recorded extensively for the SOMM label to unanimous critical acclaim. His last seven releases have been awarded consecutive sets of five-star reviews in BBC Music Magazine and his most recent CD, ‘The Piano Music of Vaughan Williams’ reached No. 3 in the UK Classical Charts where it remained for eight weeks.

Mark’s most recent concerto performances have been with the London Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic orchestras. In addition to regular appearances in the UK, during 2017 he completed a two-week tour with the Czech National Orchestra and Libor Pesek and returned to the USA for concerts with the Buffalo Philharmonic, as well as making his Israel tour debut with the Israel Camerata.
