Conway Hall, London 22 January 2006
'I have been attending the venerable early Sunday evening concert series at South Place for some 60 years; not as often as they deserve.
They were launched in 1879 and in 1929 moved to their present home. Their roster of premieres goes back to the first Dvorak quartet cycle when they were all new! The statistics are astonishing and until not long ago they always told you how many previous performances there had been of each work.
Now, under the artistic direction of Peter Fribbins, there is a breath of fresh air in imaginative programming.'
