By the second subject, as the cello entered, the piece had an energy about it that recalled Copland (with some of the violin techniques employed like Appalachian music as played by Joshua Bell). This is no criticism of the composer or the music. If it is appropriate to compare Dvorak to Beethoven then I hope it is acceptable to compare a modern composer with one from the last century!
Certainly it seemed right to describe Lachlan Bramble’s performance as “brilliant fiddling”, echoed by the piano with long notes on the cello. Hindson took all three on a thrilling ride right to the end of his work, albeit sacrificing some bow strings along the way! The composer was in the audience and received (deservedly) enthusiastic applause.'
