The festival continues in March 2018, the centenary month itself. Trio Anima presents a beguiling programme of French chamber music, juxtaposing Debussy’s war-time Sonata for flute, viola and harp with works by Dubois, Jolivet, Fauré and Ravel.
Trio Anima was formed in 2006 at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. The trio won the Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Chamber Ensemble at the 2012 Royal Overseas League Competition & First Prize at the Camac Harps Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2007. They have been Live Music Now Artists, and were awarded a Chamber Music Fellowship at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in 2011.
Three outstanding musicians of their generation form this fine chamber ensemble: Matthew Featherstone is the principal flute of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and has appeared as guest principal with orchestras such as Britten Sinfonia, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, & the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He won the Royal Overseas League Wind Prize in 2012. Violist Rosalind Ventris has performed with Mitsuko Uchida at Marlboro Festival, Tabea Zimmermann at the Wigmore Hall, & Gerhard Schultz at the Salzburg Festival. She won five prizes including Yuri Bashmet’s President’s Prize at the 2013 Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition. Anneke Hodnett performs as a soloist and regularly with orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra & the Arctic Philharmonic in Norway, where she has appeared as guest principal.
