The Cara Dawson Trio is an emerging young ensemble, exploring old and new repertoire for the still underrepresented combination of harp, viola and flute. The formation was made popular in the turn of the last century with Debussy’s Sonata en Trio, the second in his series of sonatas for unique instrumental combinations. For generations since, this unusual formation has inspired composers with its archaic feeling. Its sound world is flowery yet chaotic, a contrasting quality which is reflected in Sofia Gubaidulina’s 1980 work Garden of Joy and Sorrow. These trios will each conclude one half of the program, and will be interspersed with solo works for each instrument from different epochs.

Krist√≥f Sikl√≥si is a Berlin based composer and flautist. After completing a Flute Masters Degree in Budapest, he now studies composition at Universit√§t der K√ľnste Berlin. Having always had a deep interest in new music practices, he has in recent years organised and taken part in a diverse range of events in Budapest and Berlin. He has collaborated with several composers researching new flute techniques, after which various new flute pieces were born. Through teaching, as well as orchestral, chamber and solo playing, he has gained a lot of experience in the so-called classical repertoire as well. As a performer, his aim is to popularise lesser known repertoire, encourage composers to write new pieces and make transcriptions or arrangements.

Anna Jurriaanse is a Viola student under Sascha Fr√∂mbling at the Universit√§t der K√ľnste in Berlin, having completed her bachelor in The Hague. She has always been very passionate about chamber music, and since 2016 she has been a regular member of the Pelargos Quartet, with which she performed Stockhausen's Helicopter String Quartet in 2019. Especially as a viola player, she enjoys being able to change roles each time. From leading to following, accompanying, communicating and much more. Anna loves all kinds of music and art in different settings, but she has a preference for playing the more late romantic/modern repertoire.

Cara Dawson is a harpist from England with a reputation spanning various musical scenes. She is a graduate of the Guildhall School and Trinity Laban, and now continues at Universit√§t der K√ľnste Berlin. Her awards have included the Ida Caroll Award for Strings, Henry Wood Trust Scholarship and the John Marson Harp Award for Outstanding Musicianship. In recent years, she has dedicated significant time to performing new music and regularly works with composers to write new works for harp solo and within ensembles. In 2018, Cara co-founded the composer/performer collective 'red panel‚Äô. In 2022, she was a semi finalist in the World Harp Competition, and was invited to the Dutch Harp Festival to a perform a recital of newly commissioned and self arranged works for harp and electronics.
