Concert in Carlisle

"It is on rare occasions indeed that the quality of the music-making is matched

by the generosity of spirit of the performers to such an extent that the whole

evening is a real joy." - Ian France, The Cumbrian News


"What a fantastic concert! The playing was exquisite - and such superb ensemble playing.

It was altogether sublime."- Avril Tisdall

Last week we performed a recital in Carlisle for the Carlisle Music Society and their audience. It was so so wonderful to be back. It was my third time to perform there and Niklas's second time. This time we had a pleasure of performing there with Viv McLean - dear colleague of ours.

This concert felt so special - performing with the exceptional Niklas and Viv and seeing so many familiar faces in the audience felt like it was almost like a big family reunion! It was also just great to see a few children attending the concert.

Needless to say that performing with Niklas and Viv was of an outmost pleasure. They are incredible musicians that inspire me with every phrase they play. Can't wait for us to play together again!

We also were so happy to know that our concert was much enjoyed! We loved seeing our concert being reviewed by The Cumbrian News for their newspapers!


Coming up to the Lake District was also not just a wonderful musical occasion, but also a most enjoyable social occasion. Very dear people to us, who have become my English family, live near Carlisle and were the ones who introduced me to the beauty of the Cumbrian life!



How wonderful it was to briefly see Keswick and Carlisle again and hope it won't be long until we visit shores of the Lake District again!
