... from Jean-Claude Risset:

Dear John

Congratulations for the awarding of Hull as the City of Culture in 2017, and thank you for associating my piece Elementa to this occasion. Of course I am glad to give you permission to perform Elementa then, and I thank you for your earlier diffusion.

After a number of recent travels, I have to stay in Marseille for a month or so because of a health incident : but I hope we shall have a chance to meet in the near future.


With best wishes,

Jean-Claude Risset


... from Francis Dhomont:

Dear John,

… of course I remember and I am happy to hear from you today.

Congratulations to have obtained the possibility of interpreting Cycle du son, I am very happy and gives you my permission with pleasure.

Please let me know about the concert (send me 1 or 2 programs when you have got them).

And what about your musical activities ?

Have a good spring !

All the best to you,


Nigel Bartram:
