Join the Eos Ensemble for an intriguing musical evening at Shortwave Café on Saturday 17 November at 19.30, promising an eclectic range of music from the Baroque to the now, featuring the unusual combination of Violin and Clarinet.
Mozart - String Duo in G major for Violin and Clarinet arr. Paul Evernden
Scarlatti - Five Sonatas for solo Clarinet arr. John-Pascal Post
Evernden - Fleck for Bass Clarinet and Violin (world premiere)
Khachaturian - Sonata-Monologue for solo Violin
J. S. Bach - Partita no.2 in c minor BWV 826 for Violin and Bass Clarinet arr. Evernden
Formed at the beginning of 2017 by Paul Evernden and Angela Najaryan, both Royal Academy of Music alumni, the Eos Ensemble has a passion for both new and old, playing in different formations and with regular collaborators, mostly notably the pianist Thomas Ang.
Building programmes centred around a mix of transcriptions and new work, the theme for the concert is, somewhat ironically, the keyboard, which will be conspicuous by its absence, with seminal works for the instrument (by both Scarlatti and Bach) radically reimagined, along with one of Mozart's string duos, originally written for Violin and Viola.
A new composition by Composer/Clarinettist Paul, as well as work by Aram Khachaturian - a keening solo for violin - make up this eclectically dramatic programme.
Angela Najaryan, violin, began studying the violin in her native Armenia before being awarded a full scholarship to continue her studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
Described as a “virtuoso violinist” by the Daily Telegraph, Angela has performed regularly in solo, choral and orchestral concerts at venues including the Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican Centre, Southwark Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, Shoreditch Town Hall and St. Paul’s, Covent Garden.
Paul Evernden, clarinet, studied at the Royal College and Royal Academy of Music, and has a PhD in Composition from King's College London. His music has been programmed at venues across Europe and throughout the UK, for example, at the Roundhouse, and at the Spitalfields Music Festival. His music appears on the Lorelt and Big Shed Music labels, as well as on the Greek label, ekfrassis productions.
