The horn isn't frequently found in contemporary chamber music despite being important to composers and orchestral music for centuries. This programme aims to highlight the potential of the horn within this genre.

Grisey's Accords perdus takes us back to the origins of the horn exploring its untempered sound and diverse natural intonation.

Ligeti's famous Trio for violin, horn and piano was conceived as a tribute to Brahms and was a turning point in Ligeti’s career. 

The world premiere of Tansy Davies’s sound commissioned Trio for violin, horn and piano completes the programme. Tansy Davies is considered "one of the most distinctive voices in British music today."
