Cause for celebration (The Times)

“Undoubtedly pride of place in this concert was given to the Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor by Felix Mendelssohn, where young Charlene Farrugia brought the house down with a fine performance. This young lady has a talent which should be nurtured with care and passion. It was a joy to see young Charlene Farrugia pouring all her youthful energy into the music, while keeping her eyes riveted on the conductor. I have not seen anyone get a standing ovation at the Manoel for quite some time, but the one given to Charlene was amply merited. A cause for celebration indeed.”
