Tune in to Sky Arts on the 8th September...

07 September 2010

Tune in to SkyArts' 'First Love' on the 8th September at 8pm to see Pamela Thorby teaching Janet Street-Porter the art of the recorder. ‘First Love' sees celebrities revisit their first musical love and discover what drove their passion. Guided by a mentor, the celebrities retrain in their chosen instrument with daily practice and music lessons, finally building towards a live performance at a prestigious London venue in front of a paying audience. Will Pamela be able to teach Janet in time for her concert at the Wigmore Hall?...

Pamela teamed up with the renowned luternist Elizabeth Kenny for her fourth solo album on Linn Records. Released earlier this year 'The Nightingale and the Butterfly' is a sparkling exploration of French Baroque music. As The Herald stated: "It is music of wit, endless charm, poignant and tender expressiveness...A gentle, thoughtful experience."
