= Rian Evans on Christopher Maltman/Joseph Middleton, Llandinam Village Hall, Powys "Pianist Joseph Middleton matched Maltman for power in the two Mahler songs yet often the strength of this duo's performance lay less in the sound, deeply expressive as it was, than in the humanity." 32/40


= Andrew Clements on Philharmonia Orchestra/Esa-Pekka Salonen/Lisa Batiashvili, Royal Festival Hall, London "The Philharmonia were at their most refined and responsive throughout the evening, and neither performance could be faulted technically, but for the most part both works remained rather detached and uninvolving. That was despite the brilliance of the soloist Lisa Batiashvili in the concerto, and her fearless assault on its finale especially." 24/32 news, reviews and opinion from top writers
