Turina Escena andaluza for viola, piano and string quartet, Op. 7
Ravel String Quartet
Chausson Concerto for piano, violin and string quartet in D, Op. 21
Lawrence Power violin/viola
Simon Crawford-Phillips piano
An evening of voluptuous melody and lavish texture, combining the music of three composers whose lives coincided in Paris: Spaniard Joaquin Turina, whose piece evokes the shimmering heat of Andalucia, his teacher Ernest Chausson, whose unique 'Concert' achieves orchestral depth while belonging to the intimate world of the salon, and Ravel's captivating String Quartet, an explosion of colour for a new century.
