Category Presse, 20.07.11: A big performance for a big space

(Valentin Erben mit dem Belcea Quartett in der Royal Albert Hall)
“The first of this year’s late-night Proms in a way broke the mould. Chamber music, in its purest and simplest form, has more usually been kept to the lunchtime Proms in other venues, but here were the Belcea Quartet and cellist Valentin Erben alone on the vast Albert Hall stage, sending Schubert’s great C major Quintet echoing around us.”
