  1. Dear Peter,
    The Rossini 2016 Young Artists’ Opera Festival is performing a wonderful “Barber of Seville” set in the Italy of the 1950s this Monday 12 September at Cadogan Hall. The performances features the rising stars of opera, including a 23-year-old Italian tenor whom many consider to be the next great bel canto singer. We would be really honoured and grateful if you were able to attend a write a review about us – might you be free to do so?
    Thank you very much indeed!
    With best wishes,
    Gaetano Lo Coco
    Music Director

  2. Hello Peter.
    I saw your piece in the new Gramophone on Satie celebrating his 150th year. A few years ago I wrote a play entitled “Satie et Cocteau: A Rehearsal of a Play of a Composer by a Poet”. This month it had its US premiere in Chicago, after a one night show in 2012 for a music festival in Calgary, Alberta.

    I was wondering if you might be interested in having a read? It has had some success, but it’s a play that needs a larger audience.

    Robert Orledge, a Satie scholar and composer, who has written two books about Satie (Satie Remembered and Satie the Composer), who also gave me some guidance in the development stage, says the play is: “..A truly excellent piece of theatre which deals convincingly and imaginatively with one of the most fraught love-hate relationships in modern French art. It has real depth and excellent dramatic pacing and is a work of art in itself”.

    Thank you for your time.
    Mike Czuba.
