Suffolk violinist Rose Hinton celebrated the music of her grandfather at a recital in Great Bealings Church on Sunday.
Ms Hinton played alongside Ipswich pianist Graham Holmes, in what reviewer David Gerrow called: “A special, unique, memorable evening of very fine music”.
Their programme consisted of works composed by Rose’s grandfather, violinist Cyril Hellier and his brother, pianist Clifford Hellier.
Cyril, like Rose, was well known for his aptitude for the violin and played with many of the big bands during the 1930s and 40s.
Mr Gerrow added: “When younger, the brothers attended the Royal Academy of Music in London, from where Rose graduated with first class honours in 2015. Both enjoyed successful careers over four decades.
