Evening Standard review for Bach concert

Another rave review for Elizabeth, this time from Barry Millington in The Evening Standard for her concert of Bach at the Spitalfields Festival:

Things really caught fire with Jauchzet, however. Watts is a terrific communicator, her demeanour as engaging as her vocalism. Constantly varying both her tone and expression, she and Bennett threw off the semiquaver runs and top Cs with dazzling aplomb.

To cap it all, they offered as an encore Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine, in which soprano and trumpet unfolded lines of ravishing beauty, immaculately controlled.

The concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 1st July at 7pm
