The Programme

The Braid Ensemble arrives in Highgate!

Following their recent major success at the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room, The Braid Ensemble makes its first appearance at Lauderdale House, with a programme of hauntingly beautiful work by their founder - the widely-acclaimed composer David Braid.

David's work - described as "very honest stuff" by Steve Reich - has wide popular appeal, while also holding the fascination of musicians/music lovers across the genres. His music is lyrical, concise and instantly recognisable. 

Braid is a true original that stands entirely outside both mainstream modernism and populism; his music stays with you long after hearing it, while always leaving you wanting more.

The Braid Ensemble perform at Lauderdale House on Friday 7 June at 7.30pm. To hear/see The Braid Ensemble in action please visit their website.

The Performers

The Braid Ensemble has an unusual instrumentation of clarinet, guitar and piano - described by one reviewer as being "simultaneously intimate and broad in sound" - making for a remarkably wide tonal palette. 

The players: Anthony Bailey - clarinet; Gerard Cousins - guitar; and Rossitza Stoycheva - piano, are world class virtuosi, all of whom follow international careers as soloists, composers and conductors in their own right.
