Four: Zero Autumn 2010
Regrettably, the cellist as originally billed, Thomas Hayden Carrol, will be unable to play due to illness. We are delighted to announce he will be replaced by Richard Harwood, "a player of discernment and finesse" (Daily Telegraph). Please read below to find out more.
Following a successful debut earlier in 2010, the De La Warr Pavilion in association with Chimera Productions, is delighted to present Four:Zero; the second production of this original classical concert series which takes in the cornerstones of the solo, duo, trio and quartet repertoire.
For this season, the stellar line-up of world class performers and rising stars select their own programme from two broad themes; romanticism and folk influence. Imaginative and inspiring, each will feature a number of the most pivotal compositions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Nicola Eimer, Tamsin Waley-Cohen & Richard Harwood: Piano Trio in G Major, Hob. XV:25 'Gypsy Rondo'Dvoràk: Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 'Dumky' Brahms: Piano Trio No. 2 in C, Op. 87
Nicola has given concerto performances at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the Purcell Room and the Barbican and Wigmore Hall. Her performance of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto at St. John’s Smith Square, was described by Robert Matthewman in Musical Opinion as being ‘Beethoven playing of some distinction’.
Tamsin was described recently by the Guardian as a performer of "fearless intensity" and by the Times as a violinist who "held us rapt in daring and undaunted performances". She performs as a soloist with orchestras including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestra of St John's, London Concert Orchestra and London Chamber Orchestra and under many prolific conductors across the UK and Europe.
Tamsin became a Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music where her professor was Itzhak Rashkovsky. At the RCM she won all available awards, including, twice, the concerto competition, and was their String Player of the Year.
Richard Harwood has been a critically-acclaimed cellist since his concerto debut at the age of ten. The award-winning English cellist has performed concerti and recitals in major venues including London's Royal Albert Hall, the South Bank Centre and the Auditorium du Louvre (Paris).
Richard has collaborated with eminent conductors and performed as a soloist with orchestras including the London Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. He has played as a chamber musician with the Jerusalem and Endellion Quartets, among others.
Richard regularly plays on BBC, has given performances for various radio stations across the globe and produced a critically acclaimed debut disc for EMI Classics.
Contemporary music plays an important role for Richard. He took part in the Park Lane Group Young Artists' Series on the South Bank and premiered solo works written for him by Dominic Muldowney and Martin Butler.
"His playing is hard to beat for sheer beauty of tone."
"Fresh insight, effortless musicianship and a confidence belying his years."
"probably the greatest young 'cello talent since Jacqueline du Pré."
"an articulate musician with zest, spontaneity, technical assurance and a lovely sense of line…a major talent."
