Trilogy Ensemble Concert

Fri 8 March 2024

Flute, Harp and Viola

To celebrate International Women’s Day, Trilogy are celebrating works by women, some which were created for women to play, along with Vivaldi’s fiery Baroque trios.

Music for Flute, Harp and Viola is considered a more unusual format for a chamber music ensemble. Debussy’s 1915 Sonata for the combination launched its popularity and showcased the golden timbres and rhythmic fire you can create. Since, composers have loved creating works for the combination.

Join Trilogy in this dreamland of sounds. From the Medieval chant of Hildegard von Bingen, to Mel Bonis’ Romantic forest sound-world; Rebecca Clarke’s beautiful settings of British folk-songs and Hilary Tann’s musical response to a Celtic poem describing nature.

In 2019, supported by the Ryedale Festival, Trilogy made their debut in North Yorkshire. Their repertoire contains well known works, original arrangements and new compositions for flute, harp and viola.

Trilogy specialise in performing contemporary music and working closely with composers to create new trio works. In 2020, composer David Lancaster created ‘Before I Sleep, the city… again…’ (2020), inspired by Lockdown walks in York. Trilogy has performed this piece across the UK. Trilogy enjoy working with student composers and younger audiences, to inspire them to explore this instrumental combination through workshops and performances. In 2024, Trilogy will be working with students of the Sheffield Music Academy.
