The long legacy of Ernest Read’s work is truly remarkable.

Did you know that it was our founded Ernest Read that Yehudi Menuhin was talking about when he spoke of :
“a prime example of what one inspired man can do with single-handed devotion, decade after decade, in awakening the passion for and interest in music amongst successive generations”
 
And did you know that when Menuhin was considering founding a school for talented young musicians, it was Ernest Read he turned to for advice?
