Of their performance of Beethoven and Ravel sonatas at the recent West Cork Chamber Music Festival the Irish Times said â€œAlso totally absorbing were the performances of Beethoven and Ravel by violinist Catherine Leonard and pianist Hugh Tinney. The music just flowed from their fingers like a force of nature, as it if couldnâ€™t have been shaped or projected in any superior wayâ€
