Music achievements by Circle Member

Two free concerts of music by Fiona Frank, performed by the Trio Arcadia di Roma who are coming to the UK specially for the occasion:

Saturday 27th July at 1pm at St Paul's Church, Clifton, Bristol

Tuesday 30th July at St Mary's Church, Monmouth (part of the Monmouth Festival)

Fiona, a long-time member of the Tintern Philosophy Circle, has received international acclaim for her music compositions. Her 'Autumn Suite' was chosen after an international call for works to mark 'International Women's Day', and it was performed by I Solisti Veneti under the baton of Claudio Scimone at the Pollini Auditorium in Padua. Her music has also been performed in Luxembourg, Brussells, Cyprus and many times in Northern Italy by various chamber groups, and after winning various international competitions her work has been made part of the repertoire of the Trio Arcadia di Roma.

We now have the chance to hear Fiona's works performed by the Trio who are coming to the UK with a 'concerto monographico' of her compositions, works which will appeal to all kinds of music lovers, classical or otherwise. Her influences are wide, including jazz, classical, world, and folk idioms. At these concerts the Trio will perfom her two Piano Trios, 'Reflections on Motherhood' and 'One Voice : One Family', as well as works for violin and piano, and 'cello and piano.

'In Memoriam', a piece for oboe quartet (which was given its world premiere at the Teatro Linco, Cagliari, on the International Day marking the Elimination of Violence against Women), will be part of a programme being toured around Wales by the Woolos Ensemble in three successive concerts starting with Saturday 6th July in St Woolos Cathedral Newport, and on Saturday 25th August at the Ebenezer Chapel, Newport, Pembrokeshire. The programme will also include a selection from Bach's Goldberg Variations transcribed for string trio, Mozart's Oboe Quartet K370, and his Piano Quartet No1, K478.
