Their pieces by the composer Danny Elfman were much more lyrical and interesting and seemed more suited to the backdrop of palm trees, a thousand candles ( well battery operated ones) and dozens of banana fronds smelling a little like pee

A Palm House Concert
It was a bit of a rush but I got to Liverpool, met my friend Colin and got to the Palm House in Sefton Park for 7.27pm …minutes before the concert started.
We had bought tickets to a rather attractive string quartet playing a selection of film scores by candlelight amid the wonderful backdrop of the Victorian hot house and it was all rather civilised and rather sweet
Bravely the quartet picked some BIG numbers by John Williams , who is known more for his full orchestra set pieces with lots of horn ( so to speak) but they tried their best with the likes of Jurassic Park and Star Wars before giving a lovely rendition from Schindler’s List .
