Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio - T680290307When not performing as a soloist, violinist Nicola Benedetti appears frequently as a chamber musician - most often with the trio she co-founded with pianist Alexei Grynyuk and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich. Here the three musicians pair Brahms's first and stormiest piano trio - its darkness belying the work's major key - with music by American-born composer Arlene Sierra. Inspired by the migration patterns of butterflies, her Butterflies Remember a Mountain is a work of pointillist detail and shimmering harmonies, painted in a sequence of delicate textural gestures.

Walton - Facade - T2122277770This year's focus on William Walton wouldn't be complete without his witty, genre-bending 'entertainment' Facade. Walton's first big success, the work sets poems by his friend and patron Edith Sitwell to create a sequence of colourful, whimsical and piquant numbers for chamber ensemble and reciters. The whimsical side of Shostakovich is also represented, in his Four Waltzes. Arranged from the composer's earlier film scores, they range from the good-humoured 'Spring Waltz', the faux na?f 'Waltz-Scherzo' and the charmingly kitsch 'Barrel Organ Waltz'. There will be no interval. Finish time approx. 14:00Company Nash Ensemble. Conductor John Wilson.
