Mozart Clarinet Concerto - A really impressive performance - fluent, musical and very imaginative without being too extreme. really good passagework and articulation

Brahms Trio in A Minor - An excellent recital. The Brahms was played with consummate musicianship and a profound sense of the conversational elements. You produced a very lovely sound and the group's playing showed great integrity and emotional depth.
