And here is the first performance of my piece for guitar and guitar orchestra “Heart of the Rose”, played by Alison Bendy and the West Dean Festival orchestra at the final concert.
The piece is based on my Etude Esquisse No.12
Alison is using the guitar which she won, (Celine) donated by Earl Marsh to the West Dean bursary fund for young guitarists.

  1. Dear Alison and Gerald, I have just listened to Heart of the Rose Gerald which I really liked. The beautiful sounds of the guitar will be with me all day. What a lovely piece and so beautifully played by all especially Alison. Thank you.
    Alison we had a fab day on Saturday, to see so many friends and our dear brother 70!! Unbelievable. You were much missed. Great to see you Gerald. Lots of love to you and yours.
