Tuesday 4 June 2024, 1.00pm
Repertoire To Be Confirmed
In 2021 Charlotte was a prize-winner in the YCAT (London) and Concert Artists Guild (New York) International Auditions.
Nominated as a 2022 Rising Star Artist by Classic FM, this season Charlotte makes her debut with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and East of England Youth Orchestra.
She returns to Wigmore Hall as soloist, Radio France in Paris, and to the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival where, as leader of the Quatuor Confluence, they won 1st Prize in the Competition in 2021. Further afield she makes her debut at the Australian Chamber Music Festival and in 2024 as soloist in the USA.
Joseph Havlat is a pianist and composer from Hobart, Australia, based in London. Working as a soloist and chamber musician for music very new, very old and some things in between, he has performed in major concert venues around the UK, Europe, America, Japan and Australia.
He is a leading interpreter of new music, having collaborated with such composers as Hans Abrahamsen, John Adams, Thomas Adès, Gerald Barry, Brett Dean, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Michael Finnissy and Thomas Larcher. As a chamber musician he has performed with William Bennett, James Ehnes, Steven Isserlis, Katalin Károlyi and Jack Liebeck, alongside regular duo partners Lotte Betts-Dean, Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux and Tim Posner.
He is also a member of the LSO percussion ensemble with whom he has released a CD on the LSO Live label, featuring the premiere recording of John Adams’ two-piano work ‘Roll Over Beethoven’. As a composer his music often explores the sounds of the natural world, imbued with the harsher shapes of human modernity. He has written music spanning from solo voice to large ensemble, including for Ensemble x.y, of which he is a founding member.
An impressively assured recording debut from a violinist to watch.
The Strad / Champs Hill Records Ostinata / June 2022
This sensitively recorded debut presents an artist with something of her own to say, and something worth hearing … while the five works are all in their own ways folk-informed, technically taxing virtuoso vehicles, they are also strikingly diverse in terms of stylistic and emotional expression ... An attention-grabbing debut.
Charlotte Gardner, Gramophone/ Champs Hill Records Ostinata / June 2022
For all the fireworks and superbly executed technical devilry, there is a feeling here of essential calm, which is shattered by the vehemence of the following Fuga, played with textural clarity and a great sense of line … Ysaÿe’s Fourth Sonata is a wonderful mixture of technical rigour and emotional flexibility, with Saluste-Bridoux bringing lyrical flow and tonal beauty to even the most complex passages of multiple-stopping.
Tim Homfray, The Strad / Champs Hill Records Ostinata / June 2022
