Prokofiev magic at Norwich Assembly House
The programme consisted of From Far Beyond Chrysaanthemums and November Fog - Takemitsu, Sonata for Violin and Piano No.2 in D, Op. 94a - Prokofiev, Piece en forme de Habanera - Ravel, Poeme op. 25 - Chausson and Souvenir de Moscou op. 6 - Wieniawski.
Midori Komachi and Riyad Nicolas put on a brilliant performance with my personal highlight being the Prokofiev Sonata which highlighted the musical talents of these two young musicians. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Royal Academy of Music to showcase some of the stars of the future at such a beautiful venue as Norwich's Assembly House and their series at the Festival is always very popular.
