Pelléas Ensemble
Flute, harp & viola

Monday 22nd January 2018
7:30pm at the Penrith Methodist Church
Tickets: £16, at the door or in advance.

The Pelléas Ensemble are a young, enterprising trio, playing flute, harp and viola and come to perform at Penrith Methodist Church on Monday 22nd January at 7:30 p.m.

Their programme eschews the obvious French impressionist pieces of the early 20th century for a much wider musical survey, reflecting particularly on modern views of older music. Britten's 'Lachrymae', for instance, is a meditation on a John Dowland song, and Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin makes a ravishing companion piece to the Valses Nobles et Sentimentales which Martin Roscoe so ably played for us in November.

Bax's Elegiac Trio is a 'Celtic' gem, written in response the loss of a number of his friends in the aftermath of the Dublin Easter Rising. The trio will also present a piece specially written for them by Stephen Roberts. We are promised an evocation of Morocco – just the thing for a cold winter's night!

Tickets at £16 (students £2) are available from Lakeland Music, Beckside Books and the Tourist Information Centre in Penrith, or at the door.
