Review: Park Lane Group Monday Platform at the Wigmore Hall

Harriet Mackenzie – violin, Chris Glynn – piano (Irreconcilable Truths)

Camden New Journal 12.02.2004

Ms MacKenzie’s playing in the second half was…assured. I was a bit wary of Robert Fokkens’ 2002 work Irreconcilable Truths for Violin and Piano. In his programme notes he says that his “concern is the moment of collision”. An excuse for excessive, uncomfortable dissonance, surely. But in fact the piece was the highlight of the evening.
