Music at The Limes

Trio Sospiroso

7.00pm, at The Limes, Standlake.

Anyone who missed Trio Sospiroso's very successful concert at Newbury Methodist Church early this year should try to catch this next concert, for the Exuberant Trust, at the Limes. Trio Sospiroso (Newbury harpist Jenny Broome, with Clare Mellor, flute and Sue Black, viola) have given many recitals and played this summer at HADCAF. Their programme for Sunday evening includes two dramatic and different pieces written for this exciting combination during the First World War: Debussy’s Trio, of whose ambivalent emotions the composer wrote ‘I don’t know whether to laugh or cry’ and Bax’s Elegiac Trio, the epitome of Celtic romanticism, with swirling harp, passionate viola and consoling flute. Music by Bach and Ravel complete the programme. For more information visit:
