From customers:

Tim (, 2 years ago

Ruth and Sara were in excellent form and played their concerto with real bravura. The slow movement was particularly moving and the last movement was really exciting.

David C, 2 years ago

It was great to hear you both play so beautifully in the Malcolm Arnold Concerto – a highlight of the concert for me.
