Programme Poster / reviews
8 July 2017
Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Hungerford, as part of the Hungerford and District Community Arts Festival.
Rameau: Fifth Concert
von Weber: Trio in G Minor, Op 63
Fauré: Sicilienne
Joseph Jongen: Dieux Pièces en Trio, Op 80
Edward Watson: Aegean Dances.
"... an enthralling concert."
The combination worked brilliantly, with the contrasting instruments blending very well together. The harp’s built-in resonance was an effective foil to the less resonant acoustics of the cello and flute.
Clare’s flute-playing often demonstrated rapid-fire techniques and Jenny’s harp-playing was intricate and always accurate. A few times she used rapid, sweeping glissandi across the entire range of the instrument. Lucinda’s intonation on her cello was unerringly accurate and she produced a beautifully rich tone from her instrument.
Not many works have been written for this unusual combination of instruments. Many of the harp parts were originally written for a keyboard and were transcribed by Jenny. The cello parts were often written for viola and some flute parts for violin.
The programme travelled from the 18th century to the present day, opening with Rameau’s charmingly atmospheric Fifth Concert, which started with the harp. It was followed by von Weber’s Trio in G Minor, Op 63.
After the interval came Fauré’s well-known Sicilienne, led beautifully by the flute. Then came Belgian Joseph Jongen’s Dieux Pièces en Trio, Op 80, featuring some fabulous cello playing, and finally, a work written specially for Trio Sospiroso by contemporary composer Edward Watson – Aegean Dances.
The audience was obviously impressed by the trio, who have performed all over the UK.

What a great opportunity to hear this talented trio. As well as some familiar pieces, there were also some which were new and I found Cuatro Danzas Sibilinas by Eduardo Angulo particularly enjoyable. We were also very interested in the workings of a concert harp shown to us by Jenny Broome. I hadn't realised that it had six pedals, each having three positions. How lucky we are that GAF provides us with such entertainment on our own doorsteps. This again showed how superb the acoustics in the chapel are for small scale chamber groups.
