In 1989 he left London to become the violinist on the Pump Room Trio in Bath and continued to work as a freelance orchestral violinist and soloist. During this time he performed with orchestra many of the major violin concertos and his playing of the Mendelssohn violin concerto was described by music critic Tim Bullamore as "a performance of beauty and inspiration".
