Hi Rich and Simon
Sorry to seem rude by my tardy reply - I run a holiday company and had to race off to the French Alps the Thursday morning after your concert, and only returned last night.
So, to reply properly, yes I did enjoy the piece, but would like to hear it again to get the most out of it. I find that new music can be as challenging for the listener as it is for the players, and I would expect to get more out of this next time. The echoing acousitcs of the cathedral also make some passages "blur together", a criticism not aimed at this piece but a problem with any music played there - guess I'll have to buy the next CD!
Overall I do believe it was an important in interesting part of the programme.
One final comment about the concert - your introductions to each piece were superb. As a musical novice it is great to not only learn something about what I'm going to hear, but to get a feel for the interest and passion of the performers and composers. Well done, and I look forward to your next visit.
