Event has already taken placeIt is not often that you hear sounds like these. But everyone who has heard Debussy’s Sonata for viola, flute and harp knows that the beautiful pastels in this instrumental combination have a special glow.
Ravel wrote his sonatina for the piano, but when he heard the trio version by the harpist Carlos Salzedos he exclaimed “It could have been composed for this arrangement!” Shimmer and movements in shifting states, from Celtic inspiration and Japanese serenity to French sinew are manifested in the music of Bax, Takemitsu and Ibert when musicians from the Gothenburg Symphony perform in this unusual trio format.
