Join us for the livestreamed concert

When we commission a piece of music, we want it to last forever.

We seek out musical voices that are worth hearing. So we’ve amplified four leading voices of their generation: Australian composer Matt Laing and the soloistic talents of Z.E.N. Trio.

Matt, a Musica Viva FutureMaker, writes music of great virtuosity and originality. He has been commissioned in celebration of a patron’s significant birthday, and will play to the strengths of Z.E.N. Trio – a remarkable ensemble who’ve already made their name through the BBC New Generation scheme, a Deutsche Grammophon recording and countless acclaimed concerts.

Put these voices together, and things will get exciting. Two programs are on offer depending in which city you live in, each program includes Arno Babajanian’s trio and the world premiere of Matt’s work. Elsewhere, you’ll either be resisting the urge to stamp your feet to a grand finale (Dvořák’s intoxicating ‘Dumky’), or imploding with intense passion of the heart (Brahms’s Romantic trio).
