Fiona Crawley and Laura Hosford performed Cimarosa’s Concerto for Two Flutes at Royal Forest of Dean’s farewell concert for inspirational conductor Jack Lovell on Saturday July 2. Superb swan song for Jack who also conducted Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll and Beethoven’s Symphony No 2. The orchestra wishes him all the best for the future.
