Tom Poster, pianist said 'The Royal Albert Memorial Museum makes a wonderful concert setting: a beautiful setting with a very fine acoustic and a real sense of intimacy between performer and audience. It was perfect for a solo piano recital, and I can imagine it would be equally brilliant for chamber music. It's also rare to find a recital venue with a moose in the next room - a definite bonus.'
Penelope Lively said 'I much enjoyed the recent evening event at the Museum with Lawrence Sail - most welcoming audience and, for me, a pleasure to revisit one of my favourite museums.'
