Britten Sinfonia Ensemble
THURSDAY 01 JANUARY - 12:00 AM
Turner Sims Associate Artists
Emer McDonough flute
Clare Finnimore viola
Lucy Wakeford harp
In a change to the programme originally advertised the Britten Sinfonia Ensemble will perform Bax’s Elegiac Trio in place of Donatoni’s Small II. The revised programme is as follows:
Daniel Bjarnason new work (world premiere tour)
Jolivet Petite Suite
Takemitsu And Then I Knew ‘Twas Wind
Bax Elegiac Trio
Debussy Trio for flute, harp and viola
An evening of fine chamber music from Turner Sims’ Associate Artists. Flute, viola and harp may not be the most familiar trio combination, but it certainly lends itself to the rich exploration of colour and harmonies typical of Debussy’s output. A deeply expressive curiosity in soundscapes and association with visual art is also infused in the music of Icelandic composer Daníel Bjarnason, whose new work features alongside Debussy and others in this programme.
Principal viola Clare Finnimore talks about her experiences as part of Britten Sinfonia.
