"Abbate breathes life into piano-writing that is frequently sparse but in which every shift of rhythm or colour speaks volumes." (The Gramophone)
British-Polish violinist Michal also holds a professorial post, at London’s Guildhall School of Music. He has given concerts across Europe, the Middle-East and USA and his playing has been broadcast on BBC Radio and Polish national television.
“His understanding of the many moods and the ever changing direction of the music was masterly..” (Music Web International)
Their lyrical programme is varied and perfectly chosen to enjoy on a summer afternoon. It ranges from the sublime melodies of Mozart to the romanticism of Brahms; it includes Wieniawski’s virtuosic firework display of themes from Gounod and concludes with Bartók’s much-loved six folk-inspired Romanian Dances.
