Celebrating 20 years together, NCEM is delighted to welcome back this most original and respected British ensemble. Widely acknowledged for their ground-breaking site-specific work, particularly in sacred buildings, Acoustic Triangle has recorded four albums and performed in major concert venues and festivals all over the world – always without amplification – even appearing on-screen in an episode of ITV’s ‘Lewis’. The group’s music contains a wide variety of influences – from ancient themes and folk styles through impressionism and the jazz era to the avant-garde. Emphasis is put on melody, extended structured composition, spontaneous improvisation and thrilling interaction between the players. Much of the group’s repertoire is specially composed by Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock, but it also includes music by Henry Purcell, Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Bill Evans, Olivier Messiaen, Cole Porter and Maurice Ravel.

“Adventurous, eclectic, frequently breath-taking…three undisputed masters of the game.” The Guardian
