Audience Feedback

We've received an overwhelmingly positive response to our concerts. 

Here's just a sample of the feedback we have received.

  • BRAVO! BRAVO! Encore!
    That was almost as good as being there - and the Conversation extra a real bonus. In fact the close-ups made aspects of it even better than being there.
    Thank you all so much for putting this together and bringing it to us. It can't have been easy to do with no audience and maintaining distance. I am missing the concert hall so much, but you took me there.I think I shall have to watch it again.
    Hoping to see you back in the CRH sooner rather than later.

  • Thank you so much for taking so much trouble and time to do this for us, Kathy, Andrew and Umberto. If we couldn't be there in person, this was a wonderful and highly professional next-best. Yes, I greatly missed the audience interaction and shared experience, but there were some gains -- particularly being able to see Kathy's hands in close-up, and being able to concentrate on different aspects and go back to favourite sections. Loved the conversation too -- it really developed as it went on and became an invaluable adjunct to the concert.
    Of course I know the cost would be a drawback, but it would be superb if we could have this as an added feature even when the live concerts start again -- what a wonderful way to relive the experience of the performances (just as the audio of the 2017-19 concerts has been great).

  • What a great pleasure it has been to enjoy these 3 piano trios, more than only once at a performance just ,it seemed, for me! Thank you for making this video available. And an enormous thank you to Kathy, Andrew and Umberto for continuing to give us the gift of music.

  • Thank you so much Selby and Friends!
    I feel extremely privileged to have shared Lets Get Personal for the 2nd time today...WoW!! I Loved every moment, I felt I was the audience in the concert hall for 1,and just loved the intimacy of that. Although the electric atmosphere at your concerts is an experience I'm dying to be part of again very soon....hopefully!
    Thanks so much for all of your amazing and wonderful music and artists you've shared with us through these strange days. It's really made my days! Cheers!!

  • We have just finished watching this concert and enjoyed it greatly - I hope you can imagine tremendous applause
    - Robert
  • That was marvellous. Sat beside the fire and just enjoyed it. Nearly as good as being there (but not quite). Thank you and looking forward to future concerts. Best wishes.

  • Thank you so much to Kathy and all involved for conceiving the idea and giving us such a fabulous concert. It was almost like having a night out, having the invitation, and then sitting down at home to watch beautiful music, magnificently performed, and then enjoy the conversation afterwards. While it didn't quite have the magic of a live performance, it was definitely the nearest thing. The applause you didn't hear was so much louder than usual, in  appreciation not just of three hugely talented and personable musicians, but of the gift you gave us to enjoy at home. Definitely a high point of our isolation period. We do look forward though to having your live concerts resume!

    With many thanks

  • Fantastic effort. ALMOST as good as a concert. The sound was excellent and the video quality really good. As always, Kathryn's playing was amazing and Andrew and Umberto stayed with her all the way. Lovely way to spend an Iso afternoon. 
    - Beverley
  • What an absolutely wonderful performance! Spellbinding from beginning to end. The close up images of the musicians hands, and facial expressions added a whole new dimension to the concert.
    The talk by the performers was also wonderful to listen to - and to be able to hear very clearly.
    Thank you for going to such lengths to bring musical joy to us all.
    - Sandra
  • Last night Phillip and I watched your concert from Sydney Grammar hall, and what a joy it was! I was feeling very deprived of live music, and having your concert to fill the gap was wonderful!   And, of course, we may well see you here in July, for a real live concert! If not, we will certainly join you through the wonders of media.

  • Thank you so much for making this concert available to us! Wonderful camera work that allowed one to follow the fingering. Not sure whether it was our South Coast NSW connection, but the presentation kept cutting out, and one would have to take a guess as to where to restart it. The problem did not occur with the In Conversation section.

  • Thank you for the Let's Get Personal Concert and the lively and most interesting Behind the Scenes discussion among Pianist, Cellist and Violinist. Thank you also to Sydney Grammar School. It's obvious that a great deal of thought, ingenuity and hard work resulted in this superb Sunday Evening Concert in my tiny, isolated habitat. Bravissimi!

  • Thank you very much for providing such a wonderful concert for us to enjoy at home in these strange times. Magnificent playing by three excellent musicians.

  • A welcome reviver after homeschooling grandchildren during the week! Beautifully played and heartwarming: many thanks. 
    - Margaret and Geoffrey
  • Thank you, Kathy,! It was absolutely great. I watched the discussion first and then listened to the concert. I loved your rendition of the Mozart Trio. Brilliant!! Thanks
    - Anton
  • Thanks so much for providing this for you patrons. Unfortunately I had three episodes of freezing and had to go out, back in and move along a bit before the video would resume. Despite this disruption I really enjoyed your performance.It was lovely to see you all up so close - hands, faces, and the instruments. This enriched the performance for me. Thanks also for the supporting commentary - good idea to have this as a separate video.
    - Sally
  • Thank you so very much for the fabulous concert and the "behind the scenes" talk. 

    These words can never convey how much I enjoyed listening to the music, but also, listening to you discuss the music first brought it all so much more to life.

    While it would never replace the live performance experience, the only disappointing thing was that we weren't able to give you all the enthusiastic applause at the end!!

    Thank you again

  • Mary and I loved it - both the music and the talk.
