Audience Comments:

The very familiar Beethoven, the very sensitive piano + cello + violin, I have never heard it played better! Bach wonderful! Mendelssohn well done!! What can I say? (HT)

As usual, a wonderful concert. Their connection to each other was a joy to watch. (Anon)

***** 5 Stars. (ML)

Beethoven was absolutely electrifying. Bach a bit rushed. (MD)

Mendelssohn piano playing superb throughout. Wonderful playing of instruments in 2nd movement. (SK)

Six stars! 6.5? Seven? …Energetic! Engaging! Elegant! Enchanting! Enthusiastic! A tour de force of teamwork and harmony! Thank you! (DL)

Impatiently does the mood change. Busy Bach. Mendelssohn a passionate swoon. (SD)

Bach 5th and 6th movements would have been more enjoyable each at a slightly more comfortable tempo. (RT)

You do not start on time. People come in late – the rest have to wait. This is not acceptable. (Anon)

It was so warm it took away from the enjoyment of the concert. Otherwise a fine concert. (Anon)
