A Lunchtime Concert with Strings of Joy (Corde di Gioia): Maria Johannsen (soprano),Anna Johannsen (cello) and Giuly Johannsen (violin)

Strings of Joy (Corde di Gioia) present a recital of Regency instrumental music and Lieder, which explores the element of water. With pieces by Franz Schubert, whose music took inspiration from little splashes in a lake to the tremendous strength of a stream, this recital also features the world premiere of Brightest day a cloud, a song cycle reflecting weather and travel through poetry and voice, written by composer Liz Lane for the trio in 2017.
Strings of Joy (Corde di Gioia) is a Danish classical trio consisting of soprano Maria Johannsen and her daughters, Anna and Giuly, on cello and violin, and specialising in music from the Renaissance to present day. They have performed nationally and internationally at St Petersburg on invitation from the Danish Consulate General and Cultural Institute, Heidelberg, and Berlin for a holocaust memorial organized by Lea Rosh and the Nordic Embassies.
Liz Lane’s music has been broadcast on ITV, BBC 1 and BBC Radio 3 and performed by the Orchestra of Welsh National Opera, Bournemouth Symphony Chorus, Carducci Quartet, Foden’s Band, Symphonic Brass of the RAF, Almost Orthogonal Quartet (Israel) and Norfolk Chamber Consort (USA). She has won two awards for her work with OpenUp Music.
