About

From paulmccartney.com:

Organised by Paul himself, this intimate benefit night in aid of The Royal College of Music was held at St James Palace on 23rd March 1995 and was notable for the premiere performance of Paul’s classical piece for piano, ‘A Leaf’. At the end of the concert, Prince Charles surprised Paul by appointing him Fellow Of The Royal College of Music, Britain’s highest musical honour.
