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.
