The London-based Marsyas Trio, formed in 2009 by graduates of the Royal Academy of Music, is the UK’s leading flute, cello and piano ensemble. Showcasing a hugely diverse repertoire from the Classical and Romantic eras to the present day, the Marsyas Trio’s programming illuminates forgotten masterpieces, whilst inspiring a generation of new works through commissioning initiatives and recording projects.
Audiences around the world have been captivated by compelling narratives within programmes, whose themes varied from historical women composers and Suffrage to the reimagining of the history of humankind in the cross-art project Shadows of Time. The Marsyas Trio’s CD A Triple Portrait (Meridian Records 2015), featured chamber works by the formerly blacklisted Russian émigré Elena Firsova, in celebration of her 25 years in the UK.
Embracing the challenge that the pandemic presented for the music industry in 2020, the Marsyas Trio produced a 6-part digital season ‘At Home with the Marsyas’. The series were supported by the generous grant from Arts Council England and received over 5000 combined views.
The season included three new commissions: ‘Wisdom’ by Michael Finnissy – a groundbreaking work for trio and mezzo-soprano, ‘Salutem’ by Julian Hand – a short experimental film to accompany Laura Bowler’s eponymous piece, and ‘Three Little Mammoths’ by author Eoin McLaughlin and composer Robin Haigh (partly supported by the Fidelio Charitable Trust) – a children’s music play narrated by the Scottish comedian Janey Godley and aimed to introduce chamber music to primary-age children.
In 2021 these projects will be further developed into the recording and outreach work with the support of the Hope Scott Trust and the Marchus Trust.
This event will take place in the extension of the House which is accessible, with some limitations.
