On Sunday 15 May at the Anthony Burgess Centre in Manchester, Trio Atem will perform for the first time my chamber music cycle Per Serafino Calbarsi, inspired by the work and music of François Rabelais (d. 1553) — Serafino Calbarsi being one of Rabelais’ anagram pen-names. This includes the premiere of the chamber version of Antistrophes, a spoonerist outrage commissioned by the Trio (with funds from the Ralph Vaughan Wlillams Trust). The cycle consists of four pieces lasting about half an hour and will be preceded by a pre-concert discussion and ‘pre-performance’ of Antistrophes.
The concert itself will also include new works for solo flute by the young Manchester-based composers Rachel Graff, Rob Corrin, Joshua Brown and James Keirle.
The pre-concert event (involving the Trio and all the composers) takes places at the same venue at 14:30, followed by the gig itself at 17:00.
