Flutes & Frets
Beth Stone flutes

To Make a Long Story Short
Join the Flutes & Frets Duo for a programme of British music from the 16th through to the 19th century.

Tufnell Trio (string trio)
Yaoré Talibart violin
Thomas Kettle viola
Nathan Giorgetti cello, viola da gamba

Dialogues through Time
From William Lawes in mourning and the expertly crafted Sinfonias of JS Bach through to Purcell’s explorations of musical nostalgia and Hyacinthe Jadin’s visions of tomorrow: the Tufnell Trio presents a varied programme of composers’ dialogues with the past, present and future.

Horizon Voices (vocal ensemble)
Lindsey James & Freya Turton sopranos
Sophie Timms mezzo-soprano
James Rhodes tenor
Alex Pratley bass

Music for a While
Horizon Voices weaves transitional duets and chant interludes between full choir repertoire to create a through-devised performance. Each piece presents a different concept of transition related to religious narrative, compositional context and internal harmonic and textural transitions, featuring works by composers such as Sweelinck, Purcell and Byrd.

BREMF Medieval Ensemble
Daniel Scott
Beth Stone flute
May Robertson fiddles
Daniel Murphy lutes

The Textless Chansonniers
Tracing the transition of melodies from vocal to instrumental music in the 15th and 16th centuries through augmentation, invention and diminution.

Liturina (baroque ensemble)
Gabriella Jones violin
Iain Hall recorder
Nathan Giorgetti cello
Callum Anderson harpsichord

The Obstinate Bass
Liturina presents a sonic experience exploring the theme of transition between different historical eras, different instruments, and different works, all based on an ostinato descending bassline. Extending this idea further, their programme plays with the boundaries of beginnings and endings, merging the pieces into a continuous musical experience.
