Finghin Collins as piano soloist with the Wexford Sinfonia as the opening SCOW concert for 2011 at Christ Church Cathedral was a beautiful triumph of a virtuoso performance. Collins dispelled any bad mood of wet, windy night and parking problems with splendid flourishes of music suggesting a flight of fancy as brass and drums created a sense of orchestral urgency. He swayed to the music and from his fingers came a lyrical romantic music that kept an urgent orchestra at bay. By the end of the elegy, the orchestra gave way to a melancholy of piano.
