Ivor Bolton on Tamerlano – 2 March

Today is the general rehearsal! The first time we submit to the verdict of a public. First, as always with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, we have a warm-up rehearsal. We work the overture, discuss some tuning matters and also some of balance and tidy-up some continuo moments. We have unwanted accompaniment from noisy stage-work, but it's clear to all the guys are working flat-out, so we press-on.

Rehearsal goes well: very few mishaps and hugely committed performances from our cast. The orchestra is sublime. Graham, Kurt and I are invited to BBC Radio 3’s “In Tune” programme and then it's back to my flat in Swiss Cottage. I then decide to drive home to Cambridge to my family and the new kittens Boris and Maggie!
