5802180The Herschel Trio
DateSaturday 13th April 2019
DescriptionThe Herschel Trio Graham O'Sullivan baroque flute Susanna Pell viola da gamba Mie Hayashi harpsichord Timed to coincide with the release in Spring 2019 of Mie Hayashi's new solo disc of the complete works for harpsichord by Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer on the Resonus Classics label, tonight's programme explores his captivating music for the instrument alongside works by his colleagues at Le Concert Spirituel: the celebrated flautist Michel Blavet and the composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier as well as music by their great contemporary Jean-Philippe Rameau. The Herschel Trio formed in 2011, its members all having relocated from London to the North of England, and take their name from the astronomer and composer William Herschel (1738-1822) who relocated to the north of England himself in 1757. Graham O'Sullivan (flute/recorder) has performed with many of the country's leading baroque ensembles, and for many years has been a member of the Dunedin Consort. Susanna Pell (viola da gamba) spent the first 25 years of her career touring the world and making highly acclaimed recordings with Fretwork and The Dufay Collective. Her eclectic musical output has included appearances on the soundtracks of several films, including Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and on Kate Bush's 2005 album Aerial. Mie Hayashi (harpsichord) has performed throughout the world both as a soloist and chamber artist, winning prizes at both the 2005 Japan International Early Music Competition, and 2006 Bruges International Early Music Competition. 2016 saw the release of her much lauded solo disc 'Ascents of the Soul' (Omnibus Classics). Following the success of their 2017 series of concerts in York exploring the music of Telemann, they are delighted to be joined for their 2018-2019 series of concerts in the beautiful setting of St Olave's Church by three great friends and outstanding musicians: the flautist Rachel Brown, the singer John Potter and lutenist Jacob Heringman.
