The Trio is joined by clarinettist Robert Plane for Four Fables, a work by composer Huw Watkins which was written specifically for Plane, and which these four musicians first premièred together in 2018. They pair Watkins’ work with Messiaen’s Quartet for the end of time, which he wrote in the winter of 1940-41 for himself to play with three fellow inmates, while a prisoner of war at Görlitz.
