On Sunday 17th April Anne Allen was reunited with aclaimed pianist Chris Taylor. After a hugely successful recital for the Schubert Society of Great Britain two years ago, they were invited back to perform in central London. http://www.german-ymca.org.uk/schubert-society.html

The flautist Anne Allen's latest CD will appeal to many. The clarity of the recording is amazing, they could be in the room. A perfectly balanced ensemble giving us a sensitively realised endition of a varied and challenging programme.
