The performance took place at the Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall. The Pelléas Ensemble brought a sense of intimacy to their performance, making each member of the audience feel as if they were playing just for them.

Completing the trio were Luba Tunnicliffe on the viola and Henry Roberts playing the flute. The programme included Sonatine by Ravel and Britten’s poignant Lachrymae, Bach and a jazz-influenced work by Misha Mullov-Abbado.
