My name is Roderick Elms and I am a London-based musician, working as a keyboard player with the symphony and chamber orchestras in the capital. I'm also a writer/arranger and details can be found below and also on the music page.
I am regularly asked about a Promenade concert appearance I made on 16 August 2003. My friend and colleague Alistair Young and I made a guest appearance as two naughty schoolboys with the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor, Rumon Gamba, to play the solo piano duet part in the suite from Malcolm Arnold's "The Belles of St Trinians" - broadcast live on BBC television.
For a full reprint of the article which I was asked to write for the BBC's mazagine "Soiree Musicales", please click here. A video extract can be seen here.
