Three of the country’s leading musicians join forces as Tre Voci for a fascinating programme of exciting and approachable music by Kodály, Bach, Tavener, Brahms, Berlioz, Janácek and Schubert.


Leading lyrical soprano Ruby Hughes was a cellist herself and loves to sing with the ‘warm, expressive, very human voice’ of the cello, here played by Natalie Clein, alongside distinguished pianist Julius Drake. This consummate and curious trio have come together to curate an intriguing exploration of these three sonorities, from Tavener’s starkly expressive Akhmatova Songs to Schubert’s exhilarating Auf dem Strom, to Janácek’s enchanting Pohádka.
