Created and performed by a team of leading practitioners from around these islands ‘Beyond Borders’ explores displacement, liberation and dialogue. T. S. Eliot Prize-winning Irish poet, Sinéad Morrissey, in collaboration with the composer Piers Hellawell has created a new work combining music and poetry in a fascinating exploration of this interface, which receives its world premiere at this concert.
The programme also features Chausson’s little-heard piano trio, portraying Chausson’s churning emotions, from solace to despair, with French elegance and style. In Steuermann’s arrangement of Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht the radiance and clarity of this ‘Transfigured Night’ shine in a powerful story of transformation and reconciliation.
Since their last Sheffield appearance The Fidelio Trio have undertaken a major tour of India, made their San Francisco debut in Morrison Artists Series and presented a series of French Piano Trios at St. John’s Smith Square, London. 2016 sees CD releases on NMC and Resonus Classics and a major tour of Asia in September.
