Violinist Hugo Ticciati, artist-in-residence for Time Unwrapped, explores time from multiple perspectives in this French-inflected portrait recital.

A Bach Partita is the starting point for an improvisation, and finds echoes in Rameau’s delicate Suite and Lutosławski’s own Partita, a work which also escapes time in its aleatoric episodes, where chance and choice come into play. Messiaen’s Theme and Variations recalls and reinvents its theme through five variations, culminating in a spell-binding suspended finale.

Ticciati is joined by cellist Julian Arp and pianist Natacha Kudritskaya for Ravel’s ravishing Piano Trio, in which the composer plays with dance metres and returns us to Bach in a grave Passacaglia.
