The concert was recorded by the BBC, and included world premieres of pieces by John Tavener and Judith Bingham, performed by Endymion and the BBC Singers, conducted by David Hill.
The edition of Hear and Now will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 90-93 FM on Saturday 21st July, starting at 22:30. You can tune in live online or listen again for seven days after the broadcast, here.
Endymion has a busy few weeks ahead, with performances at Cheltenham Festival, Temple Church and Wigmore Hall.

On 11th July Endymion will be performing one of their most popular programmes at Temple Church, featuring the Mozart and Brahms Clarinet Quintets, featuring clarinettist Mark van de Wiel. A perfect Summer evening’s entertainment! Tickets for that are available here.
On 15th July, they’ll be making their first ever appearance in the prestigious Wigmore Hall Coffee Concert series, performing Brahms’ sumptuous Clarinet Trio and Horn Trio. Don’t miss it!

The Phoenix Piano Trio had a great time on Sunday 13th May making their debut at London’s prestigious Wigmore Hall. The trio performed music by Thomas Dunhill, John Ireland and Beethoven – cheered on by a very large and appreciative audience. The concert marked several special occasions: John Ireland’s 50th anniversary since his death in 1952, and the launch of the Trio’s first CD on the Stone Records label, of Beethoven’s Archduke Trio and Op.70/2 Trio, the latter that they performed in the concert. One punter commented afterwards: “I’m not a big Ludwig fan (I know, blasphemy!) but this just took my breath away!”.
The disc, pictured above, has been selling really well, and can be ordered direct from Stone Records here. We’re looking forward to performing the Ireland more through this year and 2013, and our next recording, and our next Wigmore concert. Stay tuned!
