Schumann, Kurtag and Khachaturian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016

Right now I’m busy rehearsing for this summer’s appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe. On Saturday 27th August, Alex and I will be joined by Feargus Heatherington playing violin and viola, for a fascinating musical journey.

Fairy Tales

Robert Schumann’s Fairy Tales for clarinet, viola and piano, stormy and tender, set the mood for György Kurtág’s deeply-felt Hommage à R.Sch: a work rich in allusions to the romantic composer’s fantastical alter egos Master Raro, Eusebius and Florestan. The programme concludes with Aram Khachaturian’s exuberant Trio for clarinet, violin and piano, based on Middle Eastern folk melodies.
