A remarkably fine ensemble…

The Avalon Quartet, also at the Wigmore Hall (25 May), confirmed its status as a remarkably fine ensemble…such was the electrifying character of this performance that it proved intoxicating… These players are powerful communicators, anticipating each others’every last gesture. A serene, still reading of the slow movement of the slow movement from Mendelssohn’s Quartet in E minor op.44 no.2 left me longing for more.
