King’s Lynn St Nicholas Classical Music Rocks flute and harp concert review by Andy Tyler





Two distinguished professional classical musicians gave the Classical Music Rocks new concert series a fine start at St Nicholas’ Chapel recently, writes reviewer Andy Tyler.

Gabriella Dall’Olio played harp, and Klio Blonz flute, in a varied and stimulating recital.

The evening also enabled the audience to relax and reflect at the week’s end.

Two comparatively well known pieces, an arrangement of the second movement of Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto and Debussy’s Arabesque No.1, were performed in the recital.

It also included not so well known works by Ravi Shankar, Pearl Chertok, and William Alwyn.

I always welcome the opportunity to hear music I am not so familiar with.

Here the musicians played the sometimes technically difficult works convincingly.

The recital finished in lively fashion with two South American folk tunes, Il Partida and El Diablo Suelto.

The musicians gave background information about the pieces played between items.

Both performers answered audience questions at the drinks reception afterwards.

The next recital in the Classical Music Rocks concert series will be held at the end of this month at St Mary’s Church in Snettisham.

It features Phillipa Mo, performing the violin.
