"It was an evening of pure delight, an exploration of richness in sounds, texture, mood and imagination. Throughout the performance, Llŷr kept every aspect of the music under control; his meticulous precision and clarity was admirable to the extent that we appreciated every single note played."
Clarinet & Piano
"a most pleasant intimacy... whisperingly delicate sounds produced by musicians with the utmost care... moments where we held our breath in anticipation for what would be come next... impeccable timing achieved naturally by a spirited partnership in front of our eyes."
Matinee, Solo Piano
"When an excellent instrument finds an excellent performer who can understand, experiment and extract the best out of it, the result is powerful. Yesterday our lovely piano, which is sweetly voiced by our technician to suit our concert room, found a perfect owner."
Violin & Piano
"There was a fierce loyalty between Alina and Cédric... the partnership breathed the same air and shared the same mood; his variety of tone, sometimes warm and caressing, sometimes crisp and distinctive, was the most valuable gift to match her sublime clarity and deeply engaged sounds."
Two Solo Piano Recitals on Tuesday 8 & Wednesday 9 January 2019
"This wonderful programme performed by one of the world’s most prominent young pianists twice in a row is something you don’t come across very often, and the experience was exceptional and irreplaceable... Benjamin is a musician with an outpouring musicality and his own very clear musical ideas".
"Wow, what a vibrant and joy-packed evening, given by four fantastic teenage musicians! Mendelssohn, Mozart and Sibelius violin concertos, Schumann Lieders and Chansons by Fauré, Caucasus flute melodies and so much more in one evening – we could not have been more spoiled."
Violin & Piano
"Callum excelled in pouring out simple, but most glorious melodies, while Richard’s flow serenaded gracefully, and together they sang... we received a true sense of musical integration and harmony, created and executed by two individual instruments right there and then, in front of our eyes"
Matinee, Violin and Piano
"A most delightful one hour with a bag of pleasure to listen to. The pure simplicity was touching and elevated the emotional level, with both musicians’ sounds so gentle and caring, showing unpretentious beauty...the duo were met by an uproaring applause by the audience."
Cello and Piano
"the dark, glowing sound from deep within, suffusing with the haunting spiritual outcry of Bloch, highly melodic lines of Beethoven’s unpretentious beauty, empowering lyricism with hints of atonality of Bridge, to tremendously controlled and fun-kicked Paganini, the tonality and sonority produced from Jamal’s gut strings changed shape and appearance at their own will"
Solo Piano - Waiting list only
One of the foremost pianists in Europe, a soloist at some of the most prestigious venues and the artistic director of the London Piano Festival at Kings Place, she is also a chamber musician who collaborates with the Heath, Navarra Brodsky & Belcea string quartets.

"In the intimate atmosphere of Breinton we could appreciate every note, every stroke and even every bow hair, which Chloë executed with extreme precision. Her pianissimos were truly divine and her fortissimos could not be more convincing; what an emotional and spiritual journey they brought."
