JOE CONWAY reviews last week’s classical concerts, with high praise for CUCO and the Endellion String Quartet.
JOE CONWAY : ‘James’s diction was consistently clear, even in Where’er You Walk, with its notorious continuation Cool gales shall fan the glade! (Try saying that after a few May Ball drinks!)’
JOE CONWAY : ‘Most concert-goers recognise passion and commitment when they see it, but this performance took things to the next level.’
MADELINE DE-BERRIE and JOE CONWAY agree ‘the concentration of no player waned’ and ‘with each player individually connected with the music emotionally.’
JOE CONWAY : ‘Just looking around at the players’ evident enjoyment of these great tunes should make one reluctant to add to the snobby criticisms that have always been levelled at Tchaikovsky.’
JOE CONWAY : ‘The powers-that-be had decided to do without an overture or curtain-raiser and the Steinway grand was ready with its lid up, a bit like a lion with its jaws open.’
JOE CONWAY: ‘The sonorities were rich and the energy levels high as all five players went full pelt for the final summation.’
JOE CONWAY: ‘A dynamic conductor, a flamboyant soloist, and CUCO very near the top of its form.’
JOE CONWAY enjoyed this admirable effort from a developing orchestra with plenty of joyous moments.
