Reviews:

 

Last Concert - 13th October 2019: The Feoffes Hall, Colyton 

The concert was a triumph. Definitively one of the best so far.

 

Bizet overture ' Dr Miracle'

The orchestra played with the perfect speed the overture. It was performed with wit and precision

 

Beethoven: Piano Concerto no 3 

Throughout the concerto I could feel the orchestra wide awake, listening and reacting to whatever the soloist did.

 

Mendelssohn: Symphony no 3 ( The Scottish)

However, I have to say the symphony was the very best item

The violins were the absolute stars at the beginning of the symphony with their semiquavers performed flawlessly, together and perfectly in tune. I haven't found a single recording where that is achieved. Big bravo to them!

The woodwind performed with incredible precision and excellent intonation. All the dangerous speed changes were perfectly executed. The slow movement was performed with beautiful tenderness and striking changes of mood and colour.

And the last movement was terrific, fast, furious, loud and with a fantastic royal ending for a gorgeous audience.

The orchestra was stunning in every single way. Bravo!
