    I have seen a couple of I Maestri concerts here, and this was typical.

    I Maestri exist, according the the blurb, to give new conductors and performers a launch pad, and in this case it was pianist Laura Nocchiero. I'm no expert, but I enjoyed listening to her accompanied by the more delicate flutes and clarinets: less so when she was up against the rest of the orchestra, when she sounded quite timid.

    The programme was a typically delightful mix, with Chopin's Scherzo No 2 (arr Gale), Respighi's 'The Fountains of Rome', Ravel's Piano Concerto in G, Messiaen's 'Les Offrandes Oubliées' and Ravel's 'Daphnis et Chloe' (Suite No 2). The conductor George Hlawiczka is clearly a friendly and likeable man. I Maestri deserve to be heard more widely: if you read this review, track them down and give them your support.
