King’s Lynn Music Society review: Brahms, Hindemith, Fauré and Ravel by violinist Mathilde Milwidsky and pianist Andrew Zolinsky

Review: King’s Lynn Music Society

A varied programme of music by German and French composers from the 19th and 20th centuries greeted a full and appreciative audience at the King’s Lynn Music Society’s concert in the Town Hall Assembly Room. The event was supported by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust.

Violinist Mathilde Milwidsky, ably accompanied by pianist Andrew Zolinsky, played pieces by Brahms, Hindemith, Fauré and Ravel, plus two charming sketches by the little known Lili Boulanger – sister to the much revered Nadia.

With assurance the principal pieces, the sonatas by Brahms and Fauré, filled as they are with emotion and drama, provided a sure foundation upon which the lighter balancing elements shone out, twinkled or blazed.

Mathilde Milwidsky not only played with insight, vigour and ease as the moment required but spoke well giving short informative introductions to the pieces in turn.

She closed with a consummate bravura rendition of Ravel’s Tzigane to the audience’s delight.
