This late May Bank Holiday weekend, Rayfield Allied look forward to a concert of notable debuts at the Brighton Festival.
In the Trio Isimsiz's first performance at the Brighton Festival, they make their debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra, performing new repertoire for the young piano trio - Beethoven's iconic Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano.
The Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellows and prizewinners at the Trondheim and Vienna Haydn International Competitions perform under the baton of Roderick Cox in the Festival's closing concert.
As adept and passionate interpreters of Beethoven's works, the Trio have recorded his 'Ghost' Trio in D major in their first recording on Rubicon, which was lauded by Gramophone as "an outstanding debut disc...unusually thoughtful interpretations are presented with dazzling technical mastery". Additional recent highlights include an all-Beethoven programme at Paris’s Théâtre des Abbesses, and his Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 70 at Wigmore Hall and Ettlingen Schlosskonzerte.
In the upcoming season, the Trio Isimsiz look forward to further debuts at home and abroad, including a concert at the Beethovenwoche Bonn in honour of the composer’s anniversary year in 2020.
Also making her debut at the Brighton Festival is Ronnita Miller, appearing alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Roderick Cox and a cast of world-class soloists in Tippett's A Child of our Time.
American mezzo-soprano Ronnita Miller arrives at this year's festival following a season of highly praised performances in the roles of Erda and First Norn in Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen at San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera Chicago, Teatro Real, Madrid and most recently at The Metropolitan Opera, New York.
As a member of the ensemble at Deutsche Oper Berlin, recent performances there include Berlioz’s Roméo et Juliette, Third Lady Die Zauberflöte, Mary Der fliegende holländer, Handmaiden L'Invisible, Fenena Nabucco, Marcellina Le Nozze di Figaro and Lucia Cavalleria rusticana.
In August, Miller returns to UK to sing First Norn Götterdämmerung at the Edinburgh International Festival.
