Alexandra Wood was described in The Strad magazine as "a talent to watch". She has won many awards and competitions and has appeared at all the major venues and festivals. She has appeared as soloist with the main national orchestras and has broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM and European stations.

"...a fiery violinist" (The Observer) "...highly charged yet imaginatively refined" (The Times)

Hugh Watkins is perhaps better known as a composer who has had remarkable success. His works have been performed by the Nash ensemble and major orchestras in the UK. He has performed at the Wigmore Hall and on the South Bank. He is not unknown to us, as he accompanied Emma Johnson a few years back when she was our celebrity recitalist.

"...a pianist of alert intelligence and a composer with something to say" (Independent on Sunday)
