Her recent repertoire has ranged from regularly performed favouritesto less common works such as Symanowski’s Stabat Mater and Elgar’s The Light of Life.

 

Robert Hunter has performed across the UK and Ireland, including several major concert venues in London. In 2002 Robert performed with Opera Etcetera as a part of the Opera Holland Park festival in London  exploring rare instrumental music by operatic composers, whjere his performance of Donizetti's first sonata at this concert was released on CD and later broadcast on Classic FM. In 2006 Robert embarked on a tour of the UK and Europe performing solo and chamber music with the Botton Eurhythmy Ensemble. Last year Robert performed with internationally acclaimed violinist, Arabella Steinbacher at a promotional event to launch her new recording of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky Concertos.
