Trio Verlaine

Saturday 16 August 2014

Lorna McGhee Flute
David Harding Viola
Heidi Krutzen Harp 

Ravel Le tombeau de Couperin (arr Morlock)
R Murray Schafer Trio for flute, viola and harp
Bax Elegiac Trio
Takemitsu And then I knew ’twas Wind
Debussy Sonata for flute, viola and harp

With its exquisite sounds and subtle, pastel colours, Debussy's highly evocative Sonata for flute, viola and harp established this unusual trio of instruments as a thrillingly expressive chamber grouping in 1915. That piece provides the passionate climax to the recital by US/Canadian Trio Verlaine, whose members are all established soloists and orchestral players in their own right.

Beforehand, it performs English composer Arnold Bax's deeply lyrical Elegiac Trio, as well as the richly melodic, Mahler-inspired Trio by leading Canadian musician R Murray Schafer. Takemitsu's And then I knew 'twas Wind combines meditative calm with tender, exotic harmonies, and the concert opens with a sparkling trio arrangement of Ravel's poignant Le tombeau de Couperin.
