The premiere of the Royal Commission, ‘Highgrove Suite’ by Patrick Hawes, took place in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses at Highgrove House in June 2010. Claire performed a truly memorable rendition of the 1st movement of this concerto - the ‘Goddess of the Woods’ with the Philharmonia Orchestra at HRH The Prince of Wales’ 60th Birthday at the Royal Opera House in November 2008. Following the success of that particular performance, a further 3 movements was added to create a full length concerto for harp based on Highgrove gardens. It was recorded by Classic FM / Universal and released 2 on the 27th of September - and immediately became Classic FM’s CD of the week, and went to no 6 in the charts. A programme was created by Alan Titchmarsh explaining the creation of the garden and of the Highgrove Suite an broadcast on BBC 2 a couple of weeks ago.
