THE Unitarian Church was especially inviting at this concert, with sunlight streaming through rococo stained glass panels and clay walls keeping the humidity at bay. An ideal setting for the trio of musicians performing a varied arrangement of compositions, from Handel to talented 18-year-old Jack Redman, a poly-instrumentalist from Brighton.

Redman’s piece situated the musicians in the insect world, as they played five short pieces - Wasp, Dragonfly, Moths, Grasshopper and Ants.

Using percussive techniques such as string plucking and staccato snapping noises, the zany inner lives of critters were brought to life.

Redman captured the languid and sonorous dancing of dragonflies especially well. The musicians seemed to have greatly enjoyed the performance and were beaming with pleasure afterwards.

Due to the delayed arrival of cellist Peter Adams, the programme was performed in reverse. The Mozart score was lacking in much beyond rote (though violinist Daniel Bhattacharya and violist Caroline Harrison were wonderfully adroit) but the final piece, a passionate work by Halvorsen based on an original work by Handel, brought the house down – meaning the revised running order worked very well indeed.
