Movingly Realized

Hindson, Corigliano
and Liszt
played by Lara St John -
heard by the late
HOWARD SMITH

'As the grinding sounds of industry and sweeping whoosh of turbine blades recede, St John distances her tone for the central lyrical episode ...'

So, what have we here? A barefooted Lara St John 'strutting-her-stuff'; disporting herself against red sandstone crags, and etched with brandished bow against a cerulean Badlands sky.

Ms St John's recent Bach solo album (again in bare feet) has her togged out in a clinging, gold dress exposing her 1779 'Salabue' Guadagnini to the wind-blown salt spray on some deserted beach!

Few would deny Lara's an attractive young woman...
