YCAT Series – Concert 1
RNCM Concert Hall, 26 November 2013
It is always a great pleasure to hear young musicians bring venerable works to life.
At this concert the quartet – Bartosz Woroch, Philip Higham, Robert Thompson and Adam Newton – played works by Mozart, Poulenc and Chausson. The latter work stood out. Chausson’s Piano Quartet in A major had a jaunty. meandering quality. Melodies emerged gradually, becoming steadily more pronounced. You listened with rapt attention.
Bartosz Woroch looked to be an extraordinarily fine violinist – definitely one to watch. He had a brilliant technique and a complete focus on the present moment. A luminous intensity. Now alone mattered.
A very enjoyable concert.
