We are developing a classical repertoire providing unique interpretations of well-known and much loved pieces including some by Brahms, Beethoven, Boccherini, Mozart and MacDowell. Over the next few years we intend to supplement this list with more of Kate's intricate arrangements for accordion and melodeon.
