Event Details

Sally Beamish’s audacious reworking of Debussy’s La Mer is the centrepiece of these concerts. It’s an astounding piece of transcription that brings all the colours and textures of a full symphony orchestra to the intimacy of a piano trio.

In a programme linked together by the swirling textures and evocative melodies of impressionism, this transformative adaptation of La Mer is the perfect partner to Ravel’s magnificent Piano Trio.

Takemitsu’s Between Tides completes the programme, its undulating rhythms and intricate harmonic soundworld blending the pictorialism of Debussy with the mysticism of Messiaen.
