Events featuring Stuart Brown's music

  • “I had tears in my eyes. Never did I think I would hear such music in Trowbridge. Just … wow.” (Grace Padfield, Trowbridge)
  • “It was a cracking concert. For me the highlight was ‘A Himalaya Concerto’. I was captivated by the tone of instrument and player the moment Idris started tuning! I immediately knew we were in for a treat. Full marks to Stuart for even knowing that a clarinet was capable of some of those sounds, and full marks to Idris for such controlled, beautiful and seemingly effortless playing.” (Paul Edwards, Trowbridge)
  • “That concerto … it just is Nepal. I’ve never been there or heard Nepalese music, but the concerto transported me there instantly.” (Kate Wall, Timsbury)
