The concert opened with Mozart's Violin Sonata in E flat composed in 1778; a two-movement work of disarming simplicity that is hard to bring off. But Chooi handled the work with a calm style, beautifully supported by pianist Stephen De Pledge. In some ways the gorgeous Piano Trio by Smetana was the highlight of the concert. With a deeply impressive relationship between all three players, this intensely rich creation came alive in glowing terms, revealing that Chooi is not just a dazzling technician, but a chamber musician of some class.
