A TALENTED group is bringing music to Bromsgrove that spans across the centuries, writes Rhys Goodfellow.
The Eblana String Trio will take to the stage at at 8pm on Friday March 2 in the latest event to have been organised by Bromsgrove Concerts.
Their concert showcases the full range of British music for string triso, from glorious Purcell Fantasias of the 17th century, through to the bittersweet pastoral soundscape of the early 20th century – with a dash of Beethovenian genius thrown in for good measure.
The programme will include Purcell’s Three-part Fantasias Nos 1 to 3, Finzi’s Prelude and Fugue Op 24, The String Trio Op 9 No 2 by Beethoven, David Matthews’ String Trio No 2 Op 89 (2003) and Moeran String Trio in G Major.
Formed in 2006 at the Royal Northern College of Music, the trio travels the country spreading the special sound of string trio and now visit tutors in the Chamber Music at Birmingham Conservatoire.
Bromsgrove concerts aims to provide programmes that are easily enjoyable, while offering a varied and imaginative repertoire.
