Fidelio Trio with Sinéad Morrissey (poet)
Fauré: Piano Trio Op. 120
Hellawell / Morrissey: Up By The Roots
Schoenberg (art. Steuermann) Verklärte Nacht
Up By The Roots was commissioned as part of a PRS for Music Foundation ‘Beyond Borders’ award to Fidelio Trio, Sinéad Morrissey and composer Piers Hellawell.
The collaboration was initiated by Fidelio Trio, who have been shortlisted for the prestigious 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society Ensemble Award, following a long collaborative relationship with Piers Hellawell. In particular it seemed appropriate that, within the ‘Beyond Borders’ theme, the Irish musicians of Fidelio Trio based in London should collaborate with an English composer working in Belfast; the catalyst proved the involvement of Belfast poet, Sinéad Morrissey, whose words provide a meditation on migration itself.
