For all sorts of reasons, Britten Sinfonia’s blog was pretty much started in Madrid. We were en route to Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay and had a couple of hours at Barajas last May. Having just invested in a new MacBook and decided to start a blog, it seemed a good time to get to grips with the blogging process. It now seems second nature (with credit to our investors, Cambridge University Press and Arts & Business East, and to our technology guru Bill Thompson).
So, David Butcher and I find ourselves once again in Madrid, this time on a mission to uncover opportunities for Britten Sinfonia in Spain, whether for a full-scale tour here, or for a further extension of our At Lunch series. We are – jointly and severally - off to Valencia, Santander, Seville and Barcelona in the next few days. In a year or two, you should see the results.
