Played with great affection. Colourful and engaging. Provided a wide range of tonal variety. Very convincing...
Persuasively played with a fine shape of sound and mood. Unique clean sound! I wanted more from you!
Sensitive and refined performance. The playing is committed and absolutely expressive!
A very stylish performance with a winning elegance in the playing and a sense musical empathy throughout..tempi were really well judged and textures were appropriately scaled. A performance with a good deal to admire and enjoy!
You were a splendid ambassador for the virtues of the Alwyn, which you had worked on with care for detail and real imagination and panache.
