The new season of Edington Arts concerts begins on Saturday 18th March with an afternoon of music from the young and extremely talented international De Beauvoir Trio.

The trio was formed in 2019 by violinist Enyuan Khong, with cellist Charlotte Kaslin and pianist Elisabeth Pion; they were recommended to us by the international music charity IMS-Prussia Cove, with whom we have had links for several years now. They were selected for the IMS masterclasses in April 2022, cementing their reputation as one of the most talented and exciting ensembles of their generation.

They have put together a programme for the afternoon which combines the ‘late great’ composers Beethoven and Dvorak, with short works by two female composers, Gabriela Lena Frank, and Lili Boulanger. Frank is Peruvian/American, and a giant of the contemporary US classical music scene, who as well as being mixed race Latina, has also overcome serious hearing loss. Lili Boulanger, a child prodigy, died in 1918 at the tragically early age of 24 having already demonstrated a genius which would have ranked her among the greats of 20th century composition.

The concert starts at 2.30pm in Edington Priory Church, and we hope you will stay on afterwards for tea and cake, and the chance to chat to these three sparky and very talented musicians.
