I love the way the QSO creates an atmosphere, which is on one level informal and on another, superbly professional. And Diana Doherty fitted perfectly into that context.

There are some musicians whose body language is neutral and formal, as if to be anything else would be to get in the way of the music. Such is not Diana Doherty, who has been known to play dressed as a wild bird and to play while moving to choreographed dance steps.

She has all the runs on the board – a world-class musician who has chosen to make one of the most temperamental of instruments her specialty. And Mozart fitted her to a "t".

Doherty has the gift of communicating to an audience and music moves through her - she moves to it. And she catches the joy and the mischief of Mozart.

With a flamboyant change of tone, she highlights that Mozart has hidden the opening notes of Beethoven's fifth in the score, and there is a chuckle throughout the audience and orchestra. And all while celebrating and respecting the music.

Quite simply, this may have been one of the most enjoyable performances of classical music that your aged reviewer has heard.
