Cambridge Composers & IAS String Trio

Cambridge University Lunchtime Concert #3

Tuesday 9th November

1:10 pm

Sam Rudd-Jones piano
Sam Weinstein – Glory in the Shapeless Maps
Sam Greening – Frames
Will Harmer – La Danse

Sam Rudd-Jones presents a program of three world premières, each by a young Cambridge composer. Sam Weinstein’s (Pembroke ’21) Glory in The Shapeless Maps is a highly dramatic and poetic work, ending with an affecting passacaglia. Sam Greening’s (King’s ’21) set of eclectic miniatures, Frames, has both rumbling Birthwistle-like textures and David Bowie quotes. Will Harmer’s La Danse is a thrilling work that synthesizes and updates the language of early 20th piano music like Bartok, Prokofiev, and Ravel.

Instrumental Award Scheme Piano Trio
Beethoven – 1st movement from Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 97, “Archduke”
Faure – 1st movement from Piano Trio in D minor, Op. 120

This piano trio was newly formed on the Instrumental Award Scheme this year, comprised of three first-year undergraduates from Clare, Girton and St John’s College. The programme starts with a movement from Beethoven’s “Archduke” Trio written towards the end of his heroic period in which many of his masterpieces were composed. It is followed by a beautiful movement from Faure’s only piano trio, one of his latest works
