‘Echoes of World War One’ - the Lawson Trio's commemorative series exploring music written between 1914 and 1918 is now completed. But you can still listen to the Trio's broadcast on BBC Radio 3 'In Tune' from 28th November, featuring music from the project. This includes movements from works by Ravel & Ives, as well as the new commission for Violin and Piano by Paul Whitmarsh.

We are very grateful to The Elias Fawcett Trust, The Fidelio Trust, The John Ireland Trust, The Ralph Vaughan Williams Trust, Colin Senior, The Chamber Music 2000 Trust and The Richard Carne Trust for their generous support in making the 'Echoes of World War One' series happen. This has enabled us not only to stage the events at Kings Place and The Forge, but also to commission the 3 new works for Chamber Music 2000+ and lead workshops and performance events with young musicians in 6 institutions.
"Not just formidable musicians, they are questing spirits who have shown a rare commitment to the creation of new music..."
