The Night With… Turning the Elements (Joanna Nicholson clarinet and Frances Cooper soprano) includes settings of poetry by Matthew Whiteside, Rebecca Rowe and Stuart Murray Mitchell by Scottish poets Jane McKie, Stewart Sanderson and Helene Grøn.

Programme

  • Three Pieces for Soprano and Clarinet by Rebecca Rowe*
  • … everyone is a child of the inbetween… by Matthew Whiteside, words Helene Grøn
  • Horo by Stuart Murray Mitchell*
  • Lux Aeterna Poetry by Nan Shepherd, music by Joanna Nicholson

The Night With… at the Edinburgh Fringe is part of the Made in Scotland Showcase We are presenting nine concerts of five different programmes as part of the showcase. Click here view all The Night With… 2019 concerts.

Turning the Elements began as the name for the 2015 project which resulted in the two suites of song in tonight’s programme.  As they evolved and our performances developed, we realised that the name reflected perfectly what we do as a duo; taking music, both new and traditional, and turning the elements of each piece to fit our two instruments, the voice and the clarinet, and putting our own slant on their performance.

Turning the Elements has appeared at festivals around the country:  StAnza Poetry Festival (St Andrews), Fringe by the Sea (North Berwick), Sound Festival (Aberdeenshire), Book Week Scotland (Jedburgh), and taken our programmes to the Isle of Arran, Campbeltown, Dundee and Aden Park in Mintlaw (with assistance from the Hope Scott Trust).

Check all 25 concerts in  The Night With… 2019 season.

 

Debut album with Orchid Classics, Lachrymae ReVisited , is available on iTunesAmazon, Spotify, Presto Classical, and others.

Duo van Vliet are an accordion and viola duo, comprising Rafał Łuc (accordion) and Ian Anderson (viola). They began playing together in January 2011 while they were both students at the Royal Academy of Music, London. Their love of contemporary music led them to name themselves after the late, great Don van Vliet, better known by his avant-garde rock persona, Captain Beefheart. In their inaugural year they reached the final of the Royal Over-Seas League Chamber Music Competition in London, and since then have dedicated themselves to expanding the viola and accordion repertoire. They make a point of commissioning as many composers as possible to write for them, and have a long list of desired future collaborations, time- and funding-allowing.

Recent highlights include the release of their debut album, Lachrymae ReVisited, on Orchid Classics (made possible by generous support from Creative Scotland, Help Musicians UK, Pigini Accordions, and many of their friends, family, colleagues); performing Georg Friedrich Haas’ double concerto for viola, accordion and chamber ensemble, “….”, with the Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej (New Music Orchestra), Katowice; their recital at St. Magnus Festival, Orkney, which was recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3; and their debut recital at the National Forum of Music, Wrocław, which included 3 world premieres commissioned by the duo.
