Reviews

Cello Recital at Lauderdale House 2005

Review for N8 magazine by David Winskill

In contrast to the wide-open spaces of Ally Pally, my next venue took me to Lauderdale House on Highgate Hill. Its size brings intimacy and immediacy to any music. Marianne Tyler (cello) and Kathleen Gilbert (piano) performed a well-constructed programme wonderfully, interpreting the lyricism of the Chopin, and the almost jazz like Debussy with equal aplomb. The highlight of the evening was Beethoven's Sonata for Piano and Cello No2. They gave us an exceptionally warm and sensitive performance. Marianne's next appearance at Lauderdale is 16th September when she gives us a Bach recital - more on www.lauderdale.org.uk.
