Solo…

Rebecca has performed twice as a soloist in the lunchtime recitals held in the chaplaincy of Dundee University.

“The Hungarian Rhapsody by Popper was fiery and boisterous and called for a highly virtuosic performance from the cellist. This was quite spectacular at times, with the several cadenzas and other daunting challenges superbly played”. Garry Fraser, Dundee Courier, Feb 2006

“In a performance of the F major Quartet (Dvorak) that was serene in its quieter moments and bursting in vitality in the more energetic sections(…) The final movement was delivered with a bravado and unanimity that was quite enthralling” Garry Fraser, Dundee Courier, Sep 2007

In February 2008, the Quartet travelled to The Isle of Arran for their annual concert series.

“…a fresh take on musical interpretation and an intelligent perception of which instrument’s voice needed to be heard…” Alison Prince, Arranvoice,Feb 2008
