DVOŘÁK Piano Quintet No.2 (39’)
MARTINŮ Nonet (16’)
VITKAUSKAITÉ New work (world premiere) (c.10’)
Three centuries of music feature in this much-anticipated return to the Crucible Studio, with a 19th century classic, a large-scale gem of the 20th century chamber repertoire and a world premiere composed in 2021. Nine members of Ensemble 360 feature in Martinů’s tuneful and optimistic, richly textured Nonet in a concert that opens with Dvořák’s lyrical and lively folk dance-inspired masterpiece. We are delighted to present the latest in our series of RPS chamber music commissions: a new work for piano trio by Rūta Vitkauskaitė.
Rūta Vitkauskaitė talks with members of Ensemble 360 about her new composition following its world premiere performance in the Crucible Studio.
Free to all ticket-holders for this concert.
