“Lucy Simmonds’s cello solo in ‘The Last Letter’ was mesmerising. Composer in residence, Michael Csanyi-Wills made note of the poignancy behind this piece. Stunning dynamic surges from the orchestra made this a warm, heartfelt performance. And what an ending. Never have I heard the sound of a full bodied chamber orchestra dissolve into complete nothingness. This was the perfect opportunity in which a minute’s silence was held, to remember those lost at War on the eve of Rememberance Sunday. Csanyi-Wills’ ‘L’Annunziata, a Tango Suite’ injected a brilliant energy back into the orchestra. Players flashed a smile here and there, as they lost themselves in the Argentine-Spanish passion. Again, the double bassists were wonderful, the intense rhythm bursting from their fingers tips. “
