It's exciting to be back here in London and to have some space to reflect upon all of the amazing experiences that I have had the fortune to share over the past six months. It's taken a hell of a lot of energy to be away so much, to live out of a suitcase, but it's been a continuos inspiration to see the world, meet the people who make this place what it is and I know I am beyond lucky to have been presented with these opportunities. I'll be going through all of my photos and experiences over the coming few weeks and will be uploading these to the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MichaelChristianDurrant/, so take a look there if you're interested in seeing more about the Adventures of a Classical Guitarist.
The year ahead is shaping up to be my busiest yet. There are a multitude of projects that are currently in preparation with a host of amazing musicians, and I am looking forward to collaborating artistically with these friends. Of course, I continue to develop my own solo repertoire and am currently tackling some big pieces ahead of performances later this year. If you are interested in hearing about future concert performances then do head over to the Contact page and sign up to mailing list. Of course, you can always have a look at the Forthcoming Concerts page too.
Sometimes the challenge of engaging with an art form, or something that you love, can seem overwhelming and difficult given the pressures of the modern world. However, it's when I reflect upon how much music has given to me through the simple act of pursuing it with all of my energy that I am encouraged to keep going as long as I can hold the guitar, and as long as my fingers can move.
