SOMMERVILLE, LONGWORTH AND ST. JOHN THRILL THE AUDIENCE AT OUR WEDNESDAY NIGHT HOUSE CONCERT.
The intimate setting was perfect for the horn and piano pieces by Dukas, Bitsch, Gounod performed beautifully by Sommerville and Longworth. With the addition of St. John, violin, we were treated to a thrilling performance of the classic Brahms trio. But the highlight of the night was the world preview of Canadian composer Vivian Fung's piece, "Bounce" for Horn, Violin, and Piano, a first for Londoners. Ms. Fung explained that it was inspired by her infant son's gyrations at bedtime. The trio gave its world premiere performance Thursday in Toronto at the Women's Musical Club of Toronto that commissioned it. They will also perform it in Boston and New York over the next week.
