Very pleased to see Ian Rosenblatt received his OBE on Friday. Prince William did the honours (boom tish, etc) with an award that recognised the soliticor’s ‘philanthropic services to music’, specifically the Rosenblatt Recital series.
There have been over 180 concerts since the Rosenblatt Recital series were established in 2000. I came to experience his artistic endeavours rather late once the series had moved to Wigmore Hall. It was central to sparking my growing interest in vocal and operatic music which had up until then been a bit of an unexplored genre.
