:: Albion Trails ::

Albion Trails - an octet for violin, viola, ‘cello, flute, clarinet, horn, harp and vibraphone - was commissioned for the Barbican Centre’s Total Immersion event 2010 and performed by the BBCSO octet. The piece was later recorded at Maida Vale studios for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Thinking about the journeys and peoples that have shaped modern Britain, Albion Trails takes a well known melody from nostalgic past to imagined future.

Conductor Richard Baker provided confident and precise direction from the podium. I enjoyed listening to all three works, but particularly appreciated David Ibbett’s Albion Trails.
