Concorde & Garth Knox

The Viola: A Wild Beast Unleashed

With Madeleine Staunton (flutes), Paul Roe (clarinets), Elaine Clark (violin), Martin Johnson (cello), Jane O’Leary (piano) and Garth Knox (viola)

Concorde unveils five new compositions by Irish composers – Ed Bennett, Brian Keegan, Garth Knox, Jane O’Leary and Judith Ring – which have been inspired by violist Garth Knox. Drawing on his vast experience as viola player with the Arditti Quartet and the Ensemble intercontemporain, he has become a unique performer of music of many different styles, ranging from minimalist understatement to the cutting edge of new techniques and new technologies.
