Bristol Ensemble’s second collaboration with the Russian pianist produced a concert of stunning virtuosity. Andrei Gavrilov and Roger Huckle encouraged an informal atmosphere, encouraging applause between movements, moving around the performance area and speaking about the works. The audience responded enthusiastically with a standing ovation at the end.
Children from Bristol Ensemble’s award-winning Preludes education project sat in on part of the rehearsal earlier in the day and were blown away by it. They were given the opportunity to perform themselves, entertaining audience members with a pre-concert event in the foyer performance space.
