For each of our tours, we commission influential writers to add flavour to our programmes. Classical journalist Emer Nestor compiled the programme notes for the cello and piano programme of Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Liszt and Brahms. Composer Kevin Volans supplied a programme note for his piece, 'for Bob'.
