Debussy: Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
Takemitsu: And then I knew ’twas Wind
Coll Garcia: New work
The programme will include a specially commissioned piece by Francisco Coll Garcia, the winner of the Mary Ryan Richmond Concert Society Composition Award, performed by Trio Anima, an ensemble of postgraduate fellows of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The Richmond Concert Society is proud to have initiated an annual event which allows subscribers to be involved in the creation of new music.
Composition students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama were invited to submit examples of their work to a reviewing panel. This year’s chosen composer, Francisco Coll Garcia, has been commissioned to write a new piece especially for the Richmond Concert Society, to be performed by Trio Anima, an ensemble of Guildhall postgraduate fellows.
The ensemble will perform a short concert after the AGM, in which the new composition will be featured along with established repertoire.
Trio Anima, comprising flute, viola, and harp, has been performing with noted success. More information can be found on their web site.
We hope to continue to make this an annual event, making the Richmond Concert Society an integral part of the creation of tomorrow’s music and the discovery of tomorrow’s talent.
This initiative has been made possible by a bequest from Mary Ryan. The winning composer receives the Mary Ryan Richmond Concert Society Composition Award, bringing with it not only a financial incentive but, perhaps more importantly, a performance before an appreciative and enthusiastic audience.
