    Reviews of the recital (two :shock: ) are now on 4barsrest:

    Also,from yesterday's Times:
    As I said in the 4barsrest review it was an excellent evening's music-making, and really warranted a larger audience, although Wednesday evening in central London is probably not the best time to draw the crowds!
