Brahms: Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25
Bartók: Rhapsody No. 1 for violin and piano, Sz.87
Schubert: Piano Trio in E flat major, D897 (Notturno)
Schubert: Piano Quintet in A major, D667 (Trout)
'Ridout and Soltani took evident pleasure in their lyrical duet, and Grosvenor dashed off his brief cadenza with a flourish, before an exhilarating race to the finish'.
'A strongly assured performance ... Park’s performance was virtuosically impressive, but inward-looking'.
'A wonderfully warm performance full of late summer evening languor tinged with sadness and loss'.
'By the finale, that sense of joy and fun was all-pervading, yet detail was not forgotten'.
Grosvenor 'is to be heartily congratulated for bringing together such a wonderfully effortless evening of high-class music making'.
