Firebird Trio welcomes William Hennessy as Guest Violin

Firebird Trio commences 2015 with a concert dedicated to the influence of Orientalism in music. Takemitsu's Between Tides offsets the compass with its exquisite irregularities of meter and harmony, while Liszt's tone-poem ‘Orpheus’ is realised in a luminous arrangement by Keith Humble. Beethoven's Kakadu Variations and Rachmaninov’s stirring trios round off the concert.
