DARTINGTON TRIO

Acrylic on gessoed panel

On concert evenings, during our holidays at Dartington, we’d sit on the right side of the hall. This was a privileged position being among the ‘trogs’. The ‘trogs’ are the voluntary helpers without whom the Dartington International Summer School of Music could not flourish. They are the ones who do all the heavy work moving the pianos, the furniture, the music stands and the endless chairs. Outside, beyond the hall, the light would fade until ‘…all the world will be in love with night.’ The picture is framed with a brown wood moulding and grey interior slip by Green & Stone of Chelsea.
