Joanna Forbes L’Estrange’s vocals were particularly captivating and powerful, coupled with the mystical imagery of icey stalactites and stalagmites, jutting through the cave walls.
The music itself, as performed live, had a far deeper and instant emotional impact on me than I was expecting; I have to give my most favourite performances a shout out from a superb all-round performance; Rachel Robson (viola), Joanna Forbes L’Estrange (vocals), Everton Nelson and Tom Pigott-Smith (violins). The violin passages in particular moved me beyond all words.
