Daring to do different down under


That photo taken by me shows the banner for Philip Glass' 2009 concert at the Norfolk & Norwich Festival. Over the years I have written enthusiastically many times about the Festival programmes which have brought Philip Glass, Jordi Savall, the Hilliard Ensemble and Jan Garbarek, the E.S.T trio, Jacques Loussier, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and many others to Norwich. Now comes news that the Festival's artistic director, Jonathan Holloway, is leaving after seven years to direct the Perth International Arts Festival in Australia. Jonathan is one of the few artistic directors who still dares to do different. Norwich's loss is Perth's gain.
