6.30pm  Doors & Bar
7.30pm  Concert

CORINNE MORRIS cello
FENELLA HUMPHREYS violin
VIV McLEAN piano

Belle Époque, l’Invitation au Voyage…
Discover the music of the Belle Époque era on a journey that will lead you from famous works and composers such as Debussy and Saint-Saëns to the hidden gems of songwriters Hahn, Chaminade, Duparc and many more…  This series of three concerts is curated by the British/French cellist Corinne Morris.

Recitals in the series:
12 Nov: The Belle Époque: Masterworks for Cello & Piano
19 Nov: The Belle Époque: Exploring Salon Music & Poetry
26 Nov: The Belle Époque: European Chamber Music

The Belle Époque: European Chamber Music
César Franck was a great protagonist of the Belle Époque and few will know he was Belgian.  Both the sonata and Chausson's Trio are fine examples of the large-scale works so typical of the Belle Époque.

Franck  cello sonata
Chausson  piano trio

  Described as 'a triumphant assertion' by Classical Music Magazine, Corinne Morris's relaunch album Macedonian Sessions recorded with the Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra, marks the British/French cellist's return to the platform after a debilitating shoulder injury brought her career to a halt for over 5 years. 
  Corinne has performed throughout Europe and beyond. She was chosen by Rostropovich to perform at his festival in Evian, and subsequently invited to the Verbier Academy in Switzerland.  She has made several recordings for the BBC, France Musique, Bayerischer Rundfunk and ORF.  Corinne, a student of Raphael Sommer, obtained an ARCM with honours (Royal College of Music, London) before continuing at the prestigious Conservatoire in Paris where she graduated in both cello and chamber-music.
  Corinne’s story has inspired many in the music industry and beyond.  She has given several interviews for publications including International Arts Manager, Classical Music Magazine, Gramophone and Australia’s Limelight Magazine.  Most recently Corinne has been featured on BBC Radio 3's In Tune programme and she gave a highly successful recital at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

First Prize winner at the 2002 Maria Canals International Piano Competition in Barcelona, Viv McLean has performed at all the major halls in the UK, as well as in France, Spain, Germany, Scandinavia, Israel, Japan, Australia and the USA.  He has given concerto performances with some of the UK's major orchestras, the Philharmonia, the RPO and the English Chamber Orchestra.  Next season's highlights include performances of the Ravel Concerto in G with the Hallé in April 2015.
  McLean has worked with leading chamber ensembles including the Ysaye String Quartet and collaborated with such artists as Natalie Clein and Daniel Hope.  Viv McLean has recorded regularly for BBC Radio 3 as well as for Classic FM, the WDR, Radio France, the ABC in Australia, Norway's NRK and for the Sky Arts television channel.

“... top-class performance by Nguyen, her technical prowess augmented once again by an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings this magical music to life.” MusicWeb International

British-Vietnamese pianist Tra Nguyen's performances have been praised as "coruscating" (The Independent), "sophisticated" (Rheinpfalz-Zeitung) and possessing "surpassing keyboard artistry and passion" (American Record Guide).  Her recent recordings on Sterling Records and Grand Piano Naxos have been chosen as Album of the week by The Independent, in March 2010 and in April 2012.

Tra's imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music.  She worked with Sterling Records to produce premiere recordings of music for piano and orchestra by Joachim Raff.  The most recent chamber music CD with clarinetist Sabine Grofmeier has  been released on ARS Produktion, featuring works of the German romantics and their contemporaries.   Further releases of her critically acclaimed recording series of Joachim Raff's piano music can be found on Grand Piano (Naxos group).

Tra gave her first performance at the Hanoi Opera House when she was ten and has continued to engage audiences in other prestigious venues worldwide (Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, the Kennedy Center and Tokyo Opera City amongst others).

“... top-class performance by Nguyen, her technical prowess augmented once again by an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings this magical music to life.” MusicWeb International

British-Vietnamese pianist Tra Nguyen's performances have been praised as "coruscating" (The Independent), "sophisticated" (Rheinpfalz-Zeitung) and possessing "surpassing keyboard artistry and passion" (American Record Guide).  Her recent recordings on Sterling Records and Grand Piano Naxos have been chosen as Album of the week by The Independent, in March 2010 and in April 2012.

Tra's imaginative programming balances core repertoire and lesser-known music.  She worked with Sterling Records to produce premiere recordings of music for piano and orchestra by Joachim Raff.  The most recent chamber music CD with clarinetist Sabine Grofmeier has  been released on ARS Produktion, featuring works of the German romantics and their contemporaries.   Further releases of her critically acclaimed recording series of Joachim Raff's piano music can be found on Grand Piano (Naxos group).

Tra gave her first performance at the Hanoi Opera House when she was ten and has continued to engage audiences in other prestigious venues worldwide (Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, the Kennedy Center and Tokyo Opera City amongst others). Tra Nguyen studied with Lev Naumov in Moscow Conservatory and with Christopher Elton at the Royal Academy of Music, London.

The Club's exclusive bar and lounge will be open an hour before the performance and you are invited to join Tra there after the recital.
