Trio Appassionato - Programme

A beautiful new work by Libby Croad, ‘Trio Appassionata’, forms the centrepiece of this recital, celebrating the music of female composers.

Clara Schumann - Piano Trio in G minor, op. 17

Libby Croad - Trio Appassionato (first performance)

Rebecca Clarke - Passacaglia on an Old English Tune

Morfydd Llwyn Owen - Four Welsh Impressions

Lili Boulanger – Nocturne - Cortège - D’un matin de printemps

These composers may not be nearly as famous as their male peers but I have discovered fantastic pieces written by them. 

The programme is varied with some pieces joyous and exciting, others wildly passionate or simply beautiful.

I am most excited about playing the first performance of Trio Appassionata by Libby Croad, which I commissioned in 2019 but due to covid hasn’t been performed yet. It’s a lovely work for a trio with piano, violin and cello. 

Libby writes really attractive music and is getting her works performed on BBC Radio 3, 4 and Classic FM. It always feels special to be the first to perform a work. For this recital I’m delighted to be joined by Marian Givens on violin and Bryony Moody on cello. Both have played at Winter Recitals in previous years.

Covid-19


Concert arrangements will include appropriate measures to minimise the risk of Covid-19.  St Mary's is a large, high space, and the doors will be open at the interval to assist ventilation.  Seating will be arranged in groups (according to the number of people in each booking) with at least one metre social distancing, and will be allocated by the stewards.  All audience members are asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and to wear facemasks at all times.
 

Ticket holders are kindly requested to take a lateral flow test prior to attending.  They should not attend if they (or a member of their household) have any Covid symptoms, have a positive test result, or have been told to self-isolate by NHS Test-and-Trace.

If it should become necessary to alter the concert arrangements - especially if any new Covid restrictions apply - purchasers will be notified by email.
