The Fidelio Trio are no strangers to contemporary performance, having commissioned works from composers such as Michael Nyman, Gerald Barry and Beat Furrer. In this programme, Alasdair Nicolson’s Half Told Tales and Judith Weir’s Piano Trio Two bring Scottish and Chinese folk tale narratives, whilst Luke Bedford’s Chiaroscuro explores the contrasts between light and dark in painting. After the interval the trio performs the world premiere of Gamelan-inspired head-neckchest-four-five-six-thing by Scott Wilson (Director of BEAST/Reader in Composition) and In the Middle of Things by Michael Zev Gordon (CrossCurrents Artistic Director/Professor of Composition), a work which opens a dialogue on the living tradition of the piano trio as a form. Join the Fidelio Trio for a gripping evening of new music from some of today's most influential British composers.
