Echoes of a Distant Land

Wed 26 July

Marsyas Trio

Jessica Summers soprano


Haydn Trio No. 30 in F major Hob. XV:17       

Haydn Welsh Songs

Hilary Tann Llef

Ravel Chansons Madécasses

Hilary Tann In the Theatre of Air (English premiere)

Beethoven Welsh Songs


The Marsyas Trio (flute, cello, piano) are joined by soprano Jessica Summers in a programme that explores imagined portraits of foreign shores. Commissioned to write works inspired by folk songs from countries they had never visited, Haydn, Beethoven and Ravel aptly capture the spirit of these distant lands in rarely heard vocal works suffused with raw beauty, whilst Hilary Tann’s music remains deeply connected to her native Wales and its wild, open landscapes even from her home in the USA.
