I thoroughly enjoyed this all too short programme and it was only on reflection that I realised that the performances were well nigh perfect: I absorbed the music without thinking about it ."The Curlew" carried me into a realm akin to meditation and the arrangement of "Les Barricades Misterieuses" came as a complete surprise. This short piece may be enjoyed in yet another way from the preceeding works. The sequence of the programme felt "right".
