ED2011 Music Review: Brahms At Teatime (ROSL Arts)

ED2011 4/5 Reviews ED2011 Music Reviews

We all know what the average male opera singer sounds like but Abraham Singer’s voice is far beyond average. Performing some of the finest work by Brahms and Robert Schumann, Singer (oh, the irony) filled the small hotel suite with his booming voice – so much so that it was a wonder why the floor wasn’t vibrating. Clarinettist Sarah Beaty performed with a great spirit and presence, almost dancing around the small stage with her instrument, which was lovely to watch. Cellist Yelian He played with equal passion and conviction. Pianists Timothy End and Martin Cousin took turns at the keys, giving both very impressive performances whether as accompaniment or solo. The German composers would be very proud.

Royal Overseas League, 16, 18, 23, 25 Aug, 4.00pm (5.00pm), £10.00 – £12.00, fpp197.
