Thinking again about Patrick’s memorial concert, and a link to the Libertango that Misha’s orchestra performed that night.
Patrick and Lionel collaborated for years on bringing music back to life from the forgotten, dusty shelves of libraries around the globe. This morning Lionel added a lovely comment to a recent post, one that reinforces the work that they did to help bring Samuel Coleridge-Taylor into the world of known music again. Check out […]
Suzy sent me the program for tomorrow’s memorial concert in honor of Carl Mansker. I’m posting it here, hoping that some of you will be able to attend. (Click on the images for larger versions of it.) Carl was an interesting fellow and a close friend of Patrick and Stephanie. He and Antoinette were gracious […]
I received this e-mail from Waltraud Mucher about an upcoming memorial concert for Carl Mansker, a close friend of Patrick’s.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of the Russian String Orchestra directed by Patrick’s good friend Misha Rachlevsky. You may recall that Misha led the memorial concert for Patrick in September of 2017. This video is from the last concert of last year’s USA tour (November 19, 2018, for Friends of Chamber Music […]
The director of the Royal Golf Club asked me to come for an interview. Turned out he wanted a series called Concerts on the Grass in the month of August every Saturday night. We looked at the possibilities, but of course in the open air the acoustics are not so good without amplification for the […]
On 26 July 2018 the Deia International Music Festival will host a special concert to honor Patrick.

Here’s an audio recording with Patrick (18 March 2017) in which he starts by talking about his grave marker for the Deia cemetery (captured in mid-sentence). He goes on to talk about how music festivals spread across the island after he and Stephanie got the Deia festival off the ground. Transcription: JPI’m the son of […]
An incomplete work of Patrick’s dated 27 January 2014. Setting up the Festival for 1995, it seemed a good idea to commission a new work to celebrate the centenary of Robert Graves’ birth. PatrickPatrick Meadows 1934 – 2017. patrick-meadows.com
If you look closely you’ll see that this was a draft Patrick was working on while translating into Catalan and Spanish. The file is dated 18 Sep 2013 and was probably drafted for a music program. You can use the translation tool to the right (or maybe elsewhere if you’re using a mobile device) to […]
