"Dear Geoff, thank you for your beautiful playing last night. It was perfect for the occasion - striking just the note of relaxed sophistication that I was hoping to achieve. I only wish I had had 2 pairs of ears - one to listen to you properly and one to listen to my guests. Hope it wasn’t too odd playing amongst the specimen jars!"
Beth, Royal College of Surgeons February 2013
