I’ve been at the Fishguard Festival in Pembrokeshire soaking up the sun.
The wonderful La Mer Trio were there on Monday night. The ensemble consists of flute, viola and harp – a transparent and luminous sound, perfect for the cool space of St Mary’s Church in the town centre.
Here they are in rehearsal for a concert of music by Debussy, Ravel, Bax, Mathias, Telemann and a super new piece by Mervyn Burtch – and they also did a great job on my piece Beiliheulog (this is a version of the same piece that I wrote for flute, viola and guitar - see http://petereynoldscomposer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/song-for-hidden-chapel.html for more details).
And here they are in full concert gear.
Many thanks to Renate, Maja and Hannah for a beautifully controlled and elegant performance and also to Gillian, Gaye and Geraint for all their support and hospitality.
The festival runs until 30 July – details below.
