During 2017/19, Miriam Roycroft and Lance Coburn are performing the entire repertoire for cello and piano by Bohuslav Martinů at selected venues throughout Ireland. They are delighted to present some of these enticing and rarely-heard compositions in Beverley. The ‘Nocturnes’ and ‘Rossini Variations’ are typical examples displaying Martinů’s distinctive Czech expressionism with jazz-influenced rhythms and colours much in evidence. Together with Prokofiev’s beautifully lyrical sonata, premiered by and dedicated to Msitislav Rostropvich, they will also perform two pieces originally composed for voice; the beautiful ‘Suite Popular’ by Manuel de Falla and Beethoven’s ‘Bei Männern’ variations from the The Magic Flute.
