Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki wrote his two movement String Trio in 1990-91. The first movement includes lively extended cadenzas for each instrument and the second movement is a spirited and energetic fugue. Written in 1927 Anton Webern's String Trio applies the techniques of serialism to instrumental composition with music that is jagged and severe, yet strangely beautiful and lyrical.
The concert also includes a new work by Joshua Brown, an advanced student of composition from The University of Manchester.
Psappha is grateful for the support this project has received from Arts Council England, PRS for Music Foundation, The RVW Trust, The Holst Foundation and The Hinrichsen Foundation.
