Next stop was Malvern for a concert featuring the brilliant young violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky playing Elgar's Violin Concerto at the Malvern Theatres' complex, set in beautiful, landscaped grounds that were a delight to visit in their own right.
One of the finest performances I have certainly ever heard.
This young man's skill is remarkable, his ability to play every nuance, color and rhythmic power that could be coaxed out of a violin was astonishing.
And such a nice guy, too!
