Pittville Pump Room, Cheltenham

Event Price: £12 plus transaction fee

Trio by Hunter Coblentz - an RPS Composition Prize commission - will receive its world premiere by Fidelio Trio at the Cheltenham Music Festival on 15 July. Hunter Coblentz was one of six winners of the 2015 RPS Composition Prizes, and was subsequently commissioned to write this piece for the Festival. Alongside 'Trio' comes a new Beyond Borders-funded collaboration between Belfast residents Sinéad Morrissey and Piers Hellawell. The poetic sequence of 2014 T.S. Eliot Prize-winner Morrissey muses on the theme of migration, borders and sanctuary, and develops the poetic transfiguration in Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht.
