We open the 2019 Festival Début Concert series with a continuation of the twin themes of the flute, now in chamber music, and Britten-Berkeley connections: the central works this morning are by Irish composer Philip Martin, with his TS Eliot-inspired work, and Scottish composer Rory Boyle, with his work premiered in June to a commission from Trio Anima. Both composers studied with Lennox Berkeley. Debussy’s poignant trio is one of the three great chamber works he completed at the end of his life – see also the Violin Sonata on Thu 8th.
