"Matthew is an excellent communicator both through his music and his interaction with the audience at the recital in Snettisham church on October 27, 2018. There is no doubt he has a great piano technique and his choice of music demonstrated that well. The Haydn sonata was a good introduction to his style. Crisp clean late 18th century piano music with a little hint of what was to come with more emotional Beethoven. The Janacek showed great contrast between the folk element and change in timing and Matthew made us think of the Debussy to come which he played with great aplomb and sensitivity. Rachmaninov’s preludes are a pianist’s nightmare but there is no doubt the challenge to technique did not worry Matthew. I much enjoyed his interpretation but look forward to hearing it again in 10 years’ time, with some more life experiences under his belt. A fine, gifted pianist who we are privileged to have amongst us here in North Norfolk. We look forward to a return visit soon!" - Marian Abramovich

"Matthew gave us light and shade, rich harmony and virtuosity that served, but did not dominate, the music." - David Saunders
