The Long Way Home
Compositions are 'The Long Way Home' by David Knotts (b. 1972) - a lyrical tribute to the poetry of Sylvia Townsend Warner; 'The Dead Broke Blues Break' by Camden Reeves (b. 1974) - a jazz-inspired piece recalling the sound world of pianist Thelonious Monk; the Piano Trio by Anthony Powers (b. 1953), a soulful five-movement work based on folk song; 'A Fast Stomp' by Mark-Anthony Turnage (b. 1960) - an energetic, unrelenting Scherzo and Trio; and finally 'Five Rackets for Trio Relay' by Cheryl Frances-Hoad (b. 1980) - a witty double piano trio (thought to be the first of its kind) celebrating the 2012 London Olympics/Paralympics and also featuring three young musicians from Pro Corda.
The Lawson Trio has recently performed at the South Bank Centre, Kings Place, the Bath International Festival and in Aldeburgh, where they enjoyed a strings residency. Selected by Music in the Round, the Park Lane Group, Making Music and the Cavatina Trust for the 2011/2012 season, forthcoming engagements include two performances in the Wigmore Hall's 2012/2013 season and further concerts at Kings Place and at music clubs and festivals around the country.
