Testimonials for the Cairns
“Hi, guys, I hope your tour of Scotland went well. I loved your concert in Adelaide’s on Tuesday. Haydn – a real “sturm und drang” interpretation. Bridge – beautifully written and played. Shostakovich – terrifying. It blew me away! But the teuchter stuff? I was immensly proud of my tunes. It always amazes me – I put dots on paper, then musicians bring them to life. See you soon if you survive Banff. Aa the best ERIC”
Eric Rice, Composer
Concert for the Lord Provost, at Glasgow City Chambers.
“Just to say thanks to the young people who played for us at the above event, they played beautifully. They are an absolute credit to yourselves and their parents. I would be grateful if you could pass on our regards.”
“Just to thank you and your quartet for a most enjoyable recital yesterday. My father, who is normally someone who would run a mile at the mere mention of Shostakovich was full of glowing praise – as were the others in the audience! I can only say that both collectively and individually the playing was for me of the highest standard. With best wishes for your summer tour of Scotland and for your future musical engagements, individually and as a quartet. Thanks again”
