"Just to say a huge thank you for yesterday's concert. It was truly stunning, especially with such an emotionally charged programme. I so enjoyed having the opportunity to hear the Strauss.
If only more people could play it!
You both performed so well, it's a great partnership.
There was a real buzz at the end and I hope you both enjoyed it as much as the audience did. Love to have you back in the future! "
(Janine Parsons, CC Concerts administrator)
