The highly respected duo of Annette Cleary and Rachel Quinn played a programme of Romantic heart on sleeve music for cello and piano in the NCH. Annette Cleary demonstrated an extraordinary level of ease in her cello playing, unyielding tone and warm vibrato. Rachel Quinn played beautifully in the Rachmaninoff Sonata and showed considerable stamina in a notoriously virtuosic piano part. A programme of Romantic music performed to an impeccably high standard and with charisma.

Quinn was a calm presence at the keyboard making light work of the showy episodes while Cleary was a dynamo of generous expression and sprightly accentuation. A concert of chamber music at its most approachable and entertaining
