Jo Harris launches a new video and concert series showcasing chamber music by women composers.
Founder member of British brass ensemble, Bella Tromba, trumpeter Jo Harris is keenly aware of the importance of finding fresh and original music for brass.
Her first video for The Trumpet Shall Sound series is of solo trumpet piece Enter Ghost by Judith Bingham. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the work journeys from the soldiers on the battlements in Act 1, Scene IV through to the Ghosts terrifying appearance and Hamlet’s ensuing madness.
The Trumpet Shall Sound series will feature original music for brass by Diana Burrell, Sofia Gubaidulina, Betsy Jolas, Camille Pepin, Florence Price and Lucie Vellere. Jo’s aim is to introduce brass players and audiences to music that has never been recorded and or even performed in living memory.
Join Jo on YouTube for video releases and follow her online for news on performance dates at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Rye Lane Chapel and Landmark Arts Centre.
