    Assembly of the centrepiece, showing the transition from the savoury course to the dessert course. The surtout or centrepiece first appeared in France around 1700. As its name suggests, it was the centrepiece of the table display. Called a ‘machine’, it had a double function. As well as candlesticks, it included a tureen and cruet stands for the service of the savoury, and caster stands and dishes for dessert.

              This is the wonderful Largo from Antonio Vivaldi's Lute Concerto in D. I've always loved John Williams' orchestral performance at the Royal Alcazar Palace in Seville, which inspired me to arrange the Largo section for the 10-string. Guitar: Cathedral Model 15 www.jimkelleher.co.uk

                  Strata #4 is a multi-channel immersive video-installation commissioned by Palais de Beaux Arts in Lille. The subject of this work is a series of iconic pieces from the museum’s Flemish collection, focusing specifically on Rubens’ and Van Dyck’s grand altarpieces. Strata #4 is the result of a study and exploration of the paintings themselves, delving beneath their figurative appearance and looking at the very rules behind the composition, colour schemes and proportions of each piece. It is a precise process aimed at creating new contemporary images based on universal rules of beauty and perfection. Documenting the improbable collisions between classical figuration and contemporary abstraction, Strata #4 aims to create an harmonious dialogue between worlds that may appear very distant from one another, but in fact share so much in common. Strata #4 is part of the ongoing Strata Series more info+pics: http://www.quayola.com

                      This is an extraordinary piece composed by J.S. Bach: The Chromatic Fantasy. It's technically and musically very demanding and there are many decisions to be made concerning the liberties taken with the score as it is written. Many pianists argue over how this music (which was written for harpsichord) should be played on a modern piano. I am avoiding that issue altogether as I am approaching this piece as an organist. The pipe organ was my first instrument, and I played many works by Bach (and other Baroque composers) from a very young age. The Chromatic Fantasy feels like one of his organ works, and it has the dramatic arch that calls for all the different sounds and colors that the organ can create, and that the piano and imitate. I'm currently memorizing the companion Fugue that goes with this piece: https://vimeo.com/106839712
