The CLS has a reputation for innovative programming, but they took a different approach for the latest visit of their residency at Lynn.
Three works which are classics from the repertoire were given top treatment by an orchestra renowned for its immaculate playing.
The icing on the cake was the involvement of Melvyn Tan, who delighted the large audience with his performance in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 23. As he nears his 50th birthday Melvyn Tan has long proved his pedigree and cannot hide his enthusiasm.
His overt pleasure added to the enjoyment of being mesmerised by his technique - especially from his unusual seat back from the keyboard.

Douglas Boyd, who has an international career as an oboist, is now also enjoying success as a conductor. Last season, he conducted Schubert's Great C Major Symphony, and returned to guide the orchestra expertly through its predecessor,
No 8, the Unfinished.
With all his flair, artistry and authority he ensured Schumann's second Symphony, which progresses from despair to energised rejoicing, was equally thrilling.
