It is great to welcome everyone to the Kammermusik Workshop 2016 in Oxford. Starting today, we look forward to five days of chamber music for woodwind and strings. As there was no summer workshop in Santa Fe this year it has been a pleasure to see our friends arriving from the USA – we hope you all have a marvellous week in the UK! Thanks to Will Buss, Janet Yaker Murray, Keith Bowen and all the team who have prepared the week ahead – a lot of hard work but much appreciated. I look forward to working with Roger Coull, Jane Salmon, Robert Manasse, Marie Ross, Stephen Stirling and Julie Price and especially to our concert on Wednesday!
