An appreciative audience was given a real treat on 11 June when violist Lawrence Power gave a captivating and enthralling recital with pianist Simon Crawford-Phillips and swiftly realised, if they didn't know it before, why Power is described as one of the leading violists of his generation.

A programme consisting of York Bowen, Schumann, Shostakovich and Prokofiev also included Mark-Anthony Turnage's Power Play, written specially for Power and Crawford-Phillips. The evening was rounded off by two exquisite encores by Mussorgsky. Yet another concert described afterwards by several as 'one of the best ever'!
