Amy’s Page

 

During the lockdown, you might like to come to this page to relax and listen to Amy play some beautiful music for you.  There are also some recordings of her accompanying Steven. 

If you have a request, please submit it and she will see what she can do.  Send your request to:

amy.elizabeth.butler@gmail.com

Please do not request “The one-note Samba” or “Barney the Bashful Bullfrog”.

First, an experiment that the Howdenshire Music project have put together.
 
Hull-born Thomas Bertolotti is an award-winning young cellist. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied with Alfredo Piatti (Chair of Cello) and Josephine Knight, he has been based since 2018 in Milan at the Academia Teatro alla Scala, where he is principal cello. Thomas made his professional concerto debut aged just 19 performing the Elgar Cello Concerto with the Hull Philharmonic Orchestra to great critical acclaim. 
 
Although they are 25 miles apart, (Tom is in lockdown near Hull having returned 8 weeks ago from Italy and Amy is in Saltmarshe), they have managed to put together (edited by Steven) a preview of their Howden Minster Lunchtime concert ‘A Cello at the Opera’ to be held on 20 August at 1pm (fingers crossed!).
 
They have never worked together before nor rehearsed!
