The music was lovely however I thought the sound quality was bad. Not sure if her Mike was on whilst playing?

Swan lake especially was beautiful. It was a nicely varied programme. Unfortunately the sound on my iPad is not good for listening to music, it comes over somewhat ‘tinny’ so I must investigate the possibility of listening through speakers but that is my problem!! Thank you for putting concerts on for us.

Beatrice is a lovely, talented and engaging young lady. She introduced each piece with some brief, well-presented and well-researched background information, explaining that she would only play the first movement of the 'Moonlight', but didn't make it clear enough how many movements 'Swan Lake' had. It would have been helpful to see the programme. The orchestral range of sound she produced from her Kawai upright was amazing.

The sound I got on my tablet was terrible tinny. It was that bad that I did not listen to everything. I was very disappointed.

Beatrice Nicholas gave a stunning recital, playing throughout without sheet music, full of emotion and dexterity. I was spellbound and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Please, please ask her back for more concerts.
