Daria takes over London
In May Sony Classical released my CD in the UK. London has always been a bit intimidating to me, I could never get the map into my brain; the city is just too big! And how could I reach people, new people, in this gigantic place?
My sister Ilonka and me devised a plan to ask all of our friends if they knew somebody who wanted to host a house concert. This resulted in an overwhelming 10 concerts in 9 days in several homes, companies, churches, the Dutch Embassy and the University of East London. Here you get an impression of some of these venues and what it was like. I can only say that I thought it was a fantastic way to get to know the city where Handel lived a bit better.

Next summer I will come back to London, playing recitals at both the Petworth and Henley Festival!
