The penultimate concert in the Spotlight Chamber Music Series 2023 will be given by Trio Táin, a flute, viola and harp trio comprising three sought-after, dynamic and engaging musicians.

As part of their programme, they will present two of their own arrangements – one of Debussy’s well-known and beloved Clair de Lune, as well as Arvo Pärt’s Mozart-Adagio, which is an exceptional composition insofar as most of its material is in fact a musical quotation of the second movement of Mozart’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in F major, KV 280 (189e), scored for piano trio instead. This second, middle movement of Mozart’s sonata is in F minor, the only slow movement of his eighteen piano sonatas in a minor key. It is heard here in its entirety, without missing a note. The four short movements of Mélanie Bonis’ Scènes de la Fôret will follow – Nocturne, À l’aube, Invocation and Pour Artémis – preceding Uruguayan composer Miguel del Aguila’s 2013 composition Submerged, based on Alfonsina Storni’s romantic, surrealist poem Yo en el fondo del mar (Me at the Bottom of the Sea). Trio Táin’s eclectic programme will conclude with the evocative and atmospheric Souls, Boats Travelling, written in 2012 by renowned New-York based Serbian composer Aleksandra Vrebalov.
