Rivka Golani

Rivka Golani is rightly dubbed the most famous viola virtuoso ever, so any concert featuring her is an event.She’s also a professor at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich and led five of the college’s young stars in a fabulous performance of Brahms’ magnificent Sextet No2 in G major at the town’s parish church St Alfege’s. She threw herself into the recital with astonishing fearlessness, dynamism and intensity. Yet despite her extraordinary presence, she never overwhelmed violinists Andrea Montalbano and Nandita Bhatia, violist Jordi Morell and cellists Fraser Bowles and Olivia Clayton. The result was a rendition of a chamber piece it’s hard to imagine being equalled any time soon.
