On March 22nd I returned to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam kicking off my Dutch Tour with a live radio broadcast on the Spiegelzaal Show for Radio 4 presented by Hans van den Boom.

This was my second time on the Spiegelzaal Radio Show having appeared in 2009 performing works by J.S.Bach and Leo Brouwer, this visit featured works from the South American canon for the guitar and the composers Agustin Barrios and Antonio Lauro alongside some Scottish and Irish transcriptions from Harp and Lute.

Also performing on the programme were Trio Escapada and the young pianist Nikola Meeuwsen, the programme is a mix of live performance and interview, you can hear Hans and I discuss my tour in Holland and my return to the 'Mecca of Guitar' the Gitaarsalon in Enkhuizen!
