Some reviews:-

Totally absorbing. We would happily have listened to the quartet for a further hour or more

Such sensitive and inspirational playing from each musician.The pianists hands just flew over the keys! Mozart would have approved I'm sure!


It was a lovely afternoon of beautifully played Mozart, followed by cups of tea and cake, celebrating his Birthday, which everyone enjoyed in a very relaxed atmosphere.


The Dorchester quartet were completely outstanding! I hope they come again soon!

It felt an enormous privilege to have such accomplished musicians play in our church.
