February 13, 2011 saw Amber’s acclaimed New York debut concert at Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall. Its success means that the concert programme will be recorded to CD in Belgium in early September 2011.

This extraordinary concert is dedicated to preparing for the CD recording, courtesy of Jef Neve for his reference to concert @ home, where he clearly retains a good memory of his recent concert there.
