Ensemble Perpetuo is a dynamic and versatile collective of instrumentalists who perform a wide diversity of traditional and contemporary chamber music in new settings.
In tonight’s grouping violinist Fenella Humphreys is joined by violist Andrew Berridge and cellist Cara Berridge (from the Sacconi Quartet). to explore some neglected music for two and three string players.
Adrian Sutton is probably best known for his score for the smash-hit War Horse playing in London's West End, the rest of the UK, the US, Berlin and shortly the Netherlands. He is also the composer of scores for two other hit National Theatre productions, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and Coram Boy. He has written a piece for Fenella as part of her recent project Bach to the Future, a set of 6 new unaccompanied violin works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Gordon Crosse, Sally Beamish, Adrian Sutton, Piers Hellawell and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.
