It is all about timing and expression, but also the ability to play music properly while being an absolute idiot.

There were chuckles and laughter from the start, and although the humour may have been simple and sometimes predictable, it worked amazingly well.

I loved the “looks that could kill” expression from cellist Sian Kadifachi, not a word spoken but she said it all.

The mischievous one was Jon Regan, who was up for anything. His partner in crime was Adrian Garratt, who wanted the limelight and got it – but at the price of being made to look completely ridiculous.

The set up was on the basis of the biggest person having smallest instrument so Sian had the cello. Ravel's Balero provided the ultimate in audience participation invoking both lust and envy. Air on a 'G-string' had a sombre approach but there was hardly a straight face in the house.
