The reviewer for our concert on 18th March 2023, Jonathan Watts said "This demanding programme, so skilfully performed, admirably showed the variety and sheer delight of the romantic repertoire. Every section of the orchestra was given the chance to shine and responded superbly whether in exposed solo lines, beautifully balanced string, brass and wind ensembles or full-orchestral passages. Rupert Bond managed to create a wonderful balance between sections of the orchestra, allowing the subtleties of the music to come through.
Vincent Barrella's performance of the Grieg Piano Concerto demonstrated his consummate pianistic skill, with faultless articulation in the crisp runs and arpeggio passages alongside powerful, sonorous chordal sections.
It was delightful to see so many people at this first-rate performance of these hugely enjoyable works. Folkestone is indeed fortunate to have such a fine orchestra and Rupert Bond and leader Floriane Peycelon can once again be proud of their achievement.".
