Flute Kathryn Thomas

Viola Sarah-Jane Bradley

Harp Lucy Wakeford

 

Whilst Britain was preoccupied with WWI and the Somme, 1916 saw the Irish Easter Rising and attempt to attain independence. Debussy's magical trio for flute, harp and viola was written in the aftermath of the Somme in 1916 at the end of his life. Arnold Bax's 'Elegiac Trio', written in 1916, is a direct tribute to those fallen in WWI, as well as his personal response to the Irish Easter Rising. We also include Irish tributes by Hamilton Harty, as well as Hilary Tan's beautiful, celtic-influenced "Song of Amergin". Irish composer Alan Mills has written a poetic new work for the occasion: "Autumnal Variation", based on an old Irish harp melody collected by his ancestor Edward Bunting in 1792.

Science of Music - Tone Deaf?

 

Presenters: Tom Hammond (conductor)

                   Dr Layth Hanbali (doctor and violinst)

                   Heather Tomala (keyboard and ears)

 

Beethoven composed some of the world’s best-known music when he couldn’t hear – or could he? Can

we disprove the condition of being ‘tone deaf’? What difference does it make if a piece of music is in F major, C minor, or Ab Major? Can someone immediately hear a new piece of music and play it back? 

 

Live experiments involving the audience will be conducted using violin, piano and mobile phone.
