"A Russian soul entered the room with this heartachingly nostalgic piece played by the three initiators of the festival. The crisp rhythms of Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla's tango on the whim of the Argentine spring finally woke up the audience to just how good this music-making was."



​

"It was a delight to hear the Kloudas again, with Ruth Gibson on the viola and guest artist Nicola Benedetti in Three Idylls by Frank Bridge."





"After all these treats the finale was still astonishing: eight superb soloists getting together to play Mendelssohn's famously exhilarating Octet."

"Nicola Benedetti's impeccable touch was evident in Frank Bridge's Three Idylls where she helped to bring out the English melancholia in one movement and friskiness in another."
