– AUDIENCE COMMENTS –

“WHAT A DELIGHTFUL TRIO!”

What a delightful group! (Anonymous)

Schumann – Wonderful contrasts which showed the great rich low tones and the bright (ones) more. Gade – Showed the beauty of the instruments – a great blend and obvious command and love of each performer for the sounds of the instruments. Telemann – Delightful and lovely unique light sounds. Mozart – elegant and beautiful tone and shaping of phrases. Mozart would have been pleased with his choice of instruments for the music. Burge – Wonderfully fleet fingers and enviable technique of the pianist brought out the beauty of the piece. Kurtág – most imaginative and thoughtful. Schumann Op. 132 – Beautifully melodious, especially the second piece. (VH)

Classical/romantic 1st half well introduced and played – lovely combination of instruments. The two “modern” pieces in the 2nd half went over very well, well framed by presenters beforehand. Mellow, autumnal Schumann to finish off! (ME)

What a delightful trio. Love the Mozart! (MPL)

I’ve enjoyed all the concerts this year but this one was outstanding – It’s going to linger in my memory as one of my favourites! Very special group. (MK)
