Good turnout for guitar–violin duo
Laura Snowden and Joo Yeo Sir played a varied programme for a large, rapt audience last Saturday - rapt, because many of the pieces were not of the firework variety so often heard in recitals involving the classical guitar, but were more quiet and contemplative. For this listener, the guitar pieces by Villa-Lobos and the lovely duo encore, adapted from a short piano work by the Catalan composer Mompou, were particularly memorable. Joo Yeon Sir's Paganini Caprices were technically impressive, but her own composition, Paganinia, was probably more engaging in its own right.
Back to that encore... It really was a perfect end to the evening, and sent the audience home on exactly the right note.
Membership numbers are at a record level, so we asked new Members why they joined - and we think you'll be interested in the results from the questionnaire.
"Was there one concert in particular in this season’s programme that tempted you to buy a subscription?"
"Which chamber music format do you prefer?"
"Where did you hear about us?"
And finally, we asked "What's your opinion on the pricing of our season tickets?"
