´With the multifaceted creativity of the pianist Helen Leek, Clara Schumann herself would have been proud.´ The Frankfurter Allgemeine

‘The real hero of the performance was undoubtedly Helen Leek, who might have carried the whole weight of the remaining orchestral material, but with such finesse and discretion that one was never conscious of the immense task facing her. Here was ensemble playing of the highest order, spiced up by dazzling virtuoso performances from all six musicians”. The Straits Times, Singapore
