Megan Burslem – my songlines

” I was having a lesson with the great Caroline Henbest, preparing Rebecca Clarke’s ‘Sonata for Viola and Piano’. It was the first time I had ever played a solo viola work by a woman composer, and I felt so connected with her composition. Everything about this work spoke to me. I just had this crazy epiphany, that I didn’t want to play the music anymore, I wanted to speak about it!”
