Thank you so much for your beautiful playing last night - so committed, passionate, inventive and fascinating at all times. Really exactly what playing music for people is all about! I have a mountain of comments from people who just loved it, including those who realised that this was much more engaging playing than they had ever heard from the internationally celebrated quartets with whose interpretations of these pieces they were familiar. Many, many thanks.
