The Nash Ensemble’s annual contemporary music showcase features six works by Sir Harrison Birtwistle, with whom the group has enjoyed a long and close association. In addition to two earlier Nash commissions, Fantasia upon all the notes and The Woman and the Hare, they include a new Duo specifically written for the Nash’s violist Lawrence Power and cellist Adrian Brendel. The programme also takes in Elliott Carter’s Mosaic, inspired by memories of the pioneering harpist Carlos Salzedo, and a newly revised piece for solo bassoon by the late Oliver Knussen, originally written as a study for a large-scale project based on the writings of Kafka. Stefan Asbury conducts the ensemble works and the solo soprano is the Nash’s frequent and welcome guest, Claire Booth.

Rossini, Spohr and Schubert.
The first of Rossini’s elegant string sonatas precedes a pair of octets for wind and strings: the one by Spohr, with a pair of horns, full of delights, including a set of variations on Handel’s ‘Harmonious Blacksmith’ theme; the familiar one by Schubert the epitome of the divertimento in its variety and tunefulness.

Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904) – Piano Quartet No. 2 in E flat major Op. 87
Franz Schubert (1797-1828) – The Trout D667
By the time Dvořák composed his Piano Quartet in E flat he was an international celebrity, feted by the German and English musical establishments. It was composed during July and August 1889, and the inspiration seems to have flowed easily; Dvořák wrote ‘The melodies just surged upon me’. Our Chamber Ensemble in Residence also performs one of the absolute classics of the chamber music repertory, Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet.
