I am planning to perform in the Leo Brouwer masterclass in West Dean Guitar Festival. He will be, I think, in his 70th year, and it would be an amazing experience to learn from him. The first of the 3 masterclasses are open to people who are not on the festival course itself (ie. me), and the 3rd one is reserved for those who are on it. I have to send away a wee dvd of me playing, including one piece by Brouwer himself. I hope that I am successful.

I will probably learn Hika, his piece dedicated to Toru Takemitsu, but for the dvd I reckon I will record the first movement from his Sonata.
