‘A sparky, shape-shifting ensemble of starry young musicians,’ as The Arts Desk has put it, the group led by pianist Tom Poster and violinist Elena Urioste has a commitment to chamber music and to widening its audience. It can call upon a substantial roster of artists to help it achieve its ends. Its first programme focuses on rarely heard French compositions, with the 1927-8 suite for flute, horn and piano by Mel (Mélanie) Bonis (1858-1937) set alongside a 1908 work for voice, flute and piano by flautist, conductor and composer Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941), whose Pagan Evening reflects his passion for antiquity. Berlioz’s The Young Breton Shepherd is a ‘folksong’ he composed in 1833 and whose accompaniment exists in various forms.

  • Mel Bonis (1858-1937)
      • Scènes de la forêt
  • Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
      • Le jeune pâtre breton
  • Philippe Gaubert (1879-1941)
      • Soir Païen
  • Camille Saint-Saëns (1835-1921)
      • Une flûte invisible
  • Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)
      • Piano Quintet No. 1 in D minor Op. 89
