It was clear right away that this concerto was in very good hands, as she sailed through the first movement, carrying off those high notes with confidence and control. At the same time, the lady in red was not a grandstanding musician. She communicated deep concentration. The Adagio was the highlight. Lark showed a glorious legato singing tone in that sublime opening theme, and gave just the right whimsical touch to the trilling birdsong that comes a bit later. She has a stellar sense for dynamics.
