Sonata for Flute, Viola & Harp

Three of Scotland’s leading musicians come together to perform some of the entrancing music composed for this combination of instruments. French music dominates this repertoire and the programme climaxes appropriately with Debussy’s wonderful Sonata. But even composers like Bax and Takemitsu are drawn to the perfumed sensuality of the French sound when writing for these instruments.

"This ensemble ́s variety in expression was incredible... [they] shook their audience with the intensity of their playing”
