Monday 16th October 2006: Piano Recital by Colin Stone
“The playing for the most part is quite outstanding, with Colin Stone effecting a marvellous understanding for all the composer's multi-faceted personality...the overwhelming mastery of the playing is never in doubt.” Classic CD

Wednesday 8th November 2006: Martinu String Quartet and Angus Meryon (clarinet)

Saturday 23rd December 2006: Song Recital by Elizabeth Watts (soprano)

d spin that recalls the (very) young Victoria de los Angeles." The Independent - London Handel Festival

Wednesday 14th February 2007: Trio Jean Paul
"Reading scores, yet seemingly playing by music radar, as if their six hands were part of one organic whole, the German Trio Jean Paul brought an inspiring sense of ensemble coherence to three piano trios." Edinburgh Festival Review QUEENS HALL
Tuesday 6th March 2007: Piano Recital by Mark Bebbington
"One of this recital's two most astonishing revelations...It would be hard to imagine better performances than Bebbington's of these...Krystian Zimerman would have patted him on the back..." The Independent
Monday 2nd April 2007: Viola and Piano Recital by Sarah-Jane Bradley and Jonathan Ayerst
"Exceptional achievement....superb recital" The Strad (Wigmore Hall 2002)
"A ravishing viola solo" Musical Opinion (Wigmore Hall 2003)
