Rebecca Clarke Piano Trio

Rebecca Clarke and Herbert Howells were both contemporaries of RVW and both, like RVW, studied with Stanford. For Clarke composing was something of a hobby, but it was also a passion. Arguably, her two greatest works were her Viola Sonata and the stunning Piano Trio which is heard in this programme. In addition, Festival Composer-in-Association, David Bednall, fulfils a lifelong dream in composing a work dedicated to the memory of Vaughan Williams which will receive its world premiere in this concert.
