Summary

Adapted from the At Lunch One programme which will be touring the UK as part of Britten Sinfonia’s At Lunch series, this concert explores music for the combination of flute, viola and harp.

This ensemble may not be the most familiar trio combination, but it certainly lends itself to the rich exploration of colour and harmonies typical of Debussy’s output. A deeply expressive curiosity in soundscapes and association with visual art is also infused in the music of Icelandic composer Daníel Bjarnason, whose new work features alongside Debussy and others in this programme.
