Press comments

A very few examples of brief past National Press comment                                        

The Observer

“If I’m ever on Desert Island Discs, for my luxury item I’ll have the PLG Young Artists Series.”

The Financial Times

“There’s nothing quite like the PLG …   We are regularly in their debt and much better off for that.”.

The Independent

“This admirable organisation has been spotting and nurturing young talent for half a century.”

The Daily Telegraph

“Every year, a parade of new performing talent …tremendous fire and authority.”

The Guardian

“… unerring skill … potency and bravura conveyed with thrilling conviction.”

“That stalwart champion of young artists, the Park Lane Group … the spirited audience …dazzling …delicacy and depth …
What an exhilarating start to 2015.”

The Times

“The New Year Series has got off to a flying start … It was easy to see the red coals of talent glowing … full-blooded, confident musicians … she’ll be heard from, she’s got it … energetic performances … the possessor of hands of steel … aged 19, a pianist worth watching … darkly honeyed tones”

“It was a great performance of a great work, powerfully argued and animated with a breathtaking range of colour, tone and inflection.”

“… the possessor of hands of steel, able to handle the relentless cascades in Ligeti’s etuqe L’escalier du diable, the intricate rigours of Robert Simpson’s Beethoven Variations or the jumping-jack rhythms of David Matthews’s Op 47 sonata, all without turning a hair.”
