In this concert, the programme will include a new piece by Helen's Bay-based composer Simon Mawhinney entitled 'In Three'.
"...a performance of charged lyricism, tireless commitment to the churning, angular patterns and an ability to negotiate the sudden mood changes that much of the music demands."
Their extensive discography includes Ravel and Saint-Saëns for Resonus Classics; Philip GlassHead On; Korngold and Schoenberg (Verklärte Nacht arr. Steuermann) for Naxos; the complete Michael Nyman Piano Trios for MN Records; multiple releases on NMC, Delphian Records including portrait CDs for composers such as Luke Bedford and Michael Zev Gordon.
