My husband was in the middle of writing a euphonium concerto for Glyn Williams and Fodens Band when Ali Stephens died a couple of years ago.
He subsequently arranged the second movement of that piece for guitar, harp and string orchestra for myself and Craig Ogden (Ali's other duo partner) to play at her memorial concert at Trinity College of Music.
Last year Craig and myself recorded a demo version of it with the RNCM strings - appropriate to post up now it's 2 year anniversary of Ali losing her battle with cancer. A remarkable woman who achieved an enormous amount in her 40 years.
