Huw Watkins Horn Trio
Edward Nesbit (2) (Winner of OPUS2015) Lifesize Gods (world premiere tour)
Brahms Albumblatt
Brahms Horn Trio

At the time when Brahms wrote his Horn Trio the combination of the three instruments, horn, violin, and piano, was considered an innovation but has since inspired a number of works for the same ensemble, two of which feature in this performance alongside Brahms’ own work. Huw Watkins’ Horn Trio alternates driving rhythmic passages with slower contemplative music and we also hear the London premiere of a new horn trio, Lifesize Gods, written by the winner of OPUS2015, Britten Sinfonia’s competition for unpublished composers.
