On 20 February 2020, as part of Aylesbury's lunchtime series, Adriana Cristea and Mina Beldimanescu (with discrete national clothing) delighted a large but very damp audience - it was the kind of weather concert promoters dread - with a beautifully put together hour of music from their native land: From Romania With Love. We dried off quickly to a mix of violin and piano solos and duos, comprising - with one exception - pieces which few of us can have heard or known about. But the selection offered contrasts of earthy folk dancing, stomping and high-flying, as well as fantasy, poignancy, loss and staunch courage. Adriana and Mina introduced the music effectively, and their playing was fearlessly on top of every note. They ended with Bartok's ubiquitous Romanian Dances, in totally idiomatic performances. You could smell the soil. Nothing but praise was heard as the audience left. Hugely enjoyable, as well as opening a new door for the curious - and it had stopped raining! David Mulraney, Aylesbury Lunchtime Music.

Thank you for the recital you gave at All Saints, High Wycombe on Monday 30th September. The varied programme was very enjoyable and provided real light and shade. It was lovely to hear a mix of new and familiar pieces and your storytelling enhanced the experience.
