London Tales

Wednesday 18 September 2013


RCM composers and performers are collaborating on an exciting new project culminating in a lunchtime concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields on Tuesday 24 September. 

London Tales is a collection of miniature pieces newly commissioned by the Pacific Trio, formed at the RCM in 2010 by Adrian Hon Wai Poon (Clarinet), Maria Immaculata Setiadi (piano) and Michael Foyle (violin).

The miniatures are inspired by diverse scenes of London life, written by RCM composers living in the city: Andrew Crossley, Charlotte Harding, Joanne Sy, Georgia Scott, Peter Longworth, Dani Howard, Adam Kornas and Toby Nelms. Each composer was asked to create a short movement that conjures up sights and sounds of London particularly personal to them. The project will also feature the world premiere of ‘Spike’ by RCM Composition Professor Kenneth Hesketh.

The Pacific Trio were given the opportunity to perform at St Martin-in-the-Fields and mentored through all aspects of the project by the RCM’s Woodhouse Professional Development Centre (now Creative Careers Centre).

The performance of London Tales takes place on Tuesday 24 September at 1:00pm at at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 4JJ. The concert is free and no tickets are required.
