Impressive Unanimity

London Concertante's first visit to Derby Cathedral
disappoints MIKE WHEELER

 

There was an enthusiastic reception for flexibly-constituted chamber ensemble London Concertante's first visit to Derby Cathedral (Derby, UK, 9 September 2017) but, sadly, I find myself unable to raise the full three cheers.

The mostly Vivaldi evening began well, with Claire Kennington and Jonathan Storer as the lively soloists in the A minor Concerto for two violins, No 8 from the Op 3 collection l'Estro Armonico. The brisk outer movements, in particular, were played with impressive unanimity...
