Darragh Morgan presents his exquisite trio programme which contrasts Rebecca Clarke with her admired contemporary, Maurice Ravel:
‘I met Judith Weir some 20 years ago in the west of Ireland on a summer school. I remember being enchanted by her conversation that first evening and have continued to be enchanted by her and her Piano Trio Two ever since – it never loses its otherworldly beauty. We have worked with Charlotte Bray since she was a student in Birmingham and so it was a pleasure when she arranged Here Everything Shines for us. Our first encounter with Rebecca Clarke’s trio came in her adopted home of America where she is much celebrated: she created such strong, strident and emotional music, which contrasts brilliantly with the exquisite colours of Ravel’s masterpiece, a cornerstone of the genre.’
