Savitri Grier violin; Richard Uttley piano
YCAT Lunchtime Series
- Savitri Grier violin
- Richard Uttley piano
Over the last year Savitri Grier has made her debut at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and appeared as soloist with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and English Chamber Orchestra to critical acclaim. She appears with regular duo partner Richard Uttley, who is noted for the integrity and breadth of his musicianship as soloist, chamber musician and recording artist.
‘The highlight of the evening: an account of Chausson’s Poème for violin and orchestra, in which Savitri Grier was the wonderfully assured and lyrically poised soloist’ Guardian, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, May 2016
‘Some of the day’s most arresting moments came in a recital by Richard Uttley. I was enthralled by his composure, lyricism and ability to hold a moment without forcing it.’ Kate Molleson, Guardian, November 2015
