Rachel Podger – new review

“Podger plays with a remarkably consistent serenity and poise, the virtuosity unaffected, almost unnoticeable.  But, there is an underlying rhythmic vigour, which gives shape and coherence to the fluent elaborations and explorations which run, dance, fly and exclaim with unwavering eloquence.”

So says Claire Seymour of Seen and Heard International in a review of Rachel Podger’s collaboration with Voces8, A Guardian Angel.  Look out for further performances this autumn – and come and hear Rachel play some of the music in the programme, including the wonderful Biber Passacaglia at her recital for us on Friday 27 April.
