    Celebrity Recital - The Fibonacci Sequence
    The Fibonacci Sequence
    Holy Trinity Church Claygate KT10 0JP
    United Kingdom

    The Fibonacci Sequence is now well established as one of the foremost chamber ensembles in Britain, and this year celebrates its 20th anniversary. Composed of musicians of international repute it enjoys warm receptions from its audiences across the country and at London venues such as the Wigmore Hall. The Fibonacci Sequence was recently nominated for the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Chamber Music award.

    Last year's schedule saw the recording of chamber works by Alan Rawsthorne for ASV, broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, and Festival visits to the Vale of Glamorgan, Brighton, Presteigne, Sevenoaks and Windsor. Concerts this season include visits to the Mayfield, Hampstead and Highgate, Fishguard and Deal Festivals.

    A long association with the area, has resulted in sponsorship by the Stanley Picker Trust of the ensemble at Kingston University. There, in addition to regular public concerts, the ensemble supports student education with master classes, chamber music coaching, lecture/recitals and interactive analytical workshops. Composers within the school have also benefited greatly from the opportunity to write music for the ensemble.

    The group is named after Leonardo of Pisa, known as Fibonacci, -a great mediaeval mathematician. The series of numbers named after him occurs throughout the natural world in the most extraordinary way, appearing as if by magic in petals of flowers, branches of trees, spirals, and many more complex ways. The relation of the numbers to each other is directly connected to the "Golden Section," held by many to determine the most harmonious proportions in art and music.

    Adagio and Allegro, for horn and piano in A flat
    Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
    Excerpts from 8 Pieces for violin and cello
