"A thoroughly engaging mix of virtuoso expertise and unpretentious charm" says the Limelight review – and the capacity audience would undoubtedly have agreed.
Your reviewer was, the previous week, at a concert where the applause would best have been described as "polite". "Nevermind" on the other hand were greeted with deserved warmth and enthusiasm.
Whatever the name of the quartet is meant to signify, it is not laisser-faire casualness. Their ease of manner cannot disguise their passion and their focus.
As Rob Kennedy says "If there's one thing that sticks out with Nevermind, it's that quality music is at the heart of their experience. While hearing them perform, many in the highly focused audience were leaning forward into the music, not to hear it better, but to experience it more."
And hearing them play was a wonderful experience. I asked a colleague how he would summarise their playing of Bach. "One word, 'perfection'" he said.
For many of us, their rendition of six movements form Telemann's "Paris Quartet" was the highlight of the evening. "This was the music that brought us together" they told us, and it showed.
