'This is most skin-tingling when Lucian Msamati’s Salieri, who may have been a second-rate composer but is a top-class critic, recalls the moment he recognised Mozart’s genius, when he heard his Adagio: ‘A single note of the oboe hung there unwavering, piercing me through.’ And so, thanks to a fabulously talented oboist, it does so all over again.'  Full review  here

'The members of the Southbank Sinfonia are almost as much ‘stars’ of the evening as the dramatic protagonists, performing both Mozart’s music and the ‘additional’ pieces with forthright commitment as well as delicacy. There’s especially fine work from the Oboes (Anna Turmeau, Helen Clinton)'   Full review  here
