Faithful to the Spirit

Works by Vaughan Williams, Grieg, and Elgar
Past event (2016)

Examining playing styles heard on rare, early recordings of works by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edvard Grieg, and Edward Elgar, along with recording notes, correspondence, and other historical evidence, this residency constitutes the performer’s response to this information. Questions and debates that arise, approaches chosen to adopt or discard, are all aimed at using this evidence of past performance as a lens through which the interpreter can reconsider, and better understand, how we interact with music today.

This Yellow Barn Artist Residency continues the work made possible by a British Library Edison Fellowship, awarded to pianist Marisa Gupta, for the study of recordings held in the British National Sound Archives. She will be joined by violinist Maria Włoszczowska, violist Rosalind Ventris, cellist Jonathan Dormand, and double bassist Lizzie Burns.
