Elliott Carter Triple Duo

To celebrate Hard Rain Soloist Ensemble’s fifth anniversary they revisit the monumental and challenging Triple Duo from Elliott Carter as well as work from his compatriots, resulting in a programme with a strong USA thread, albeit a broad stylistic variety.

There are also two brand new pieces; firstly Ground Truthing by Piers Hellawell,and then the latest work from Greg Caffrey completing his Yeats trilogy, Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold. Finally, we have a work from our very own Joe Cutler; his piano trio, Archie.
