The three members of Acoustic Triangle are equally at home in classical music and jazz, and their work seeks to blur the perceived boundaries between these genres. Individually, their careers have taken them all over the globe – with musicians such as Mark Anthony Turnage, John Williams, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, Pat Metheny, Cleo Laine, Lee Konitz and Sting. Together they have become one of the most original and respected British ensembles, having recorded four albums and performed in major concert venues and festivals all over the world – always without amplification.
Acoustic Triangle’s music contains a wide variety of influences – from ancient themes and folk styles through impressionism and the jazz era to the avant-garde. Much of the group’s repertoire is specially composed by Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock, but it also includes music by Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Bill Evans, Olivier Messiaen and Maurice Ravel.
