eva quartet at st george’s bristol

Hannah had two complimentary tickets for a concert of Bulgarian folk music at the wonderful St George’s (with its beautiful acoustics) in Bristol tonight. She had no idea what was in store, but asked if I’d like to go along with her - at the very least, it would be an opportunity to get together for a drink and a bite to eat beforehand. In the event, it was an absolutely lovely evening of the most exquisite, pure music from four brilliant female singers. The voices were entirely unaccompanied and, unlike this youTube clip (which hardly does justice to the quartet), required no amplification whatsoever. After the first five seconds of the first song, Hannah+I just looked at each other open-mouthed - you just knew it was going to be a wonderful musical experience.
Just stunning!
