Donatoni, Daníel Bjarnason and Debussy

Donatoni, Daníel Bjarnason and Debussy

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1
United Kingdom

Britten Sinfonia
Emer McDonough flute
Clare Finnimore viola
Lucy Wakeford harp

Flute, viola and harp may not be the most familiar trio combination, but it certainly lends itself to the rich exploration of colour and harmonies typical of Debussy’s output.

A deeply expressive curiosity in soundscapes and association with visual art is also infused in the music of Icelandic composer Daníel Bjarnason, whose new work features alongside Debussy in this programme.
