UK music is thriving, not just on the stage or the recording studio but behind closed doors everywhere. Talent and passion projects permeate society, weaving a rich fabric of cultural activity across the country. In this volume we see the Navarra Quartet rehearsing in a new member in a curtained hall. Marco Fatichenti and Julian Metzger snatching a break from teaching to explore Granados and De Falla. Sofia Fomina focussing during coaching sessions at the Royal Opera House. A guitar duo searching for an enveloping acoustic. The Mela Quartet finding inspiration in Jimi Hendrix's central London bedsit flat. And the young Linos piano trio playing in a wealthy philanthropist's private concert hall in Gloucester Road.
