Tom Pinnegar has just returned from Zurich having survived the recitals until dawn and made a complete high quality recording of all 10 hours.

He reports that the event was well attended and families came even bringing children.

This was the tenth such event in Zurich and is clearly exciting enough to have created a following . . .

Best wishes
