Violin playing is a physical art with great traditions behind it. At its best, it conveys the qualities of beauty, strength and mystique. It can evoke emotions, create moods and stimulate human reaction.

Of course, in the minds of some people, the music which I play on this album would hardly categorise me as a traditionalist practising an old art form ! I have been asked if this is a 'pop' album or whether it is a statement about what constitutes new style classical music. I don't believe that there is an answer or even the need for such a question. Playing goof music on the violin has a very high 'feel good' factor. I first felt this when I was 8 and I am lucky never to have lost the feeling.

So what I like, I will want to play. I have no wish to compartmentalise music. To me, music with its beauty, strength and mystique is for enjoying and for playing. This is the way of the violin player.

I have had fun stretching myself and both my violins working on this album, and I hope that you will listen and enjoy.
