Love Is Like A Violin

Join us for a St. Teilo’s thrilling recreation of the Grand Hotel’s Palm Court.

Violinist and light music legend Max Jaffa’s extraordinary legacy has lain dormant for two generations, but now husband and wife team, Simon and Saoko Blendis, bring it back to life with a delightful, nostalgic programme of rediscovered salon music from the Max Jaffa archive. Researching this library during the Covid lockdowns, they discovered a wealth of wonderful salon pieces that had been largely forgotten, a mixture of gorgeous melodies, soulful ballads and electrifying gypsy dances which will now hold a special fascination as they will be played on Jaffa’s priceless’ Pietro Guarnerius’ violin by one of Britain’s leading violinists. Their resulting CD, “Love is like a Violin”, has already had over two million streams.


Join us for an unique evening of musical pleasure, played on the very violin that originally brought it to life.
