The concert I attended was on the 29th September 1995, they gave a further two performances in Manchester alone. Also Cheltenham twice, the Wigmore Hall, twice in Sheffield at the Crucible Theatre, and across Spain to Madrid. This booklet gives some evidence of that commitment to a piece they loved.
