American born but resident in the UK for many years, Maggie Cole enjoys an international musical life playing and recording as soloist and in chamber music on harpsichord, fortepiano and modern piano. Best known for her performances of Bach and the spectrum of 17th and 18th century harpsichord composers, she has also devoted herself to 20th and 21st century harpsichord repertoire including the concerti by de Falla, Poulenc and Tansy Davies and solo works by Andriessen, Ligeti and Gavin Bryars. Maggie performs on fortepiano with Trio Goya (violionist, Kati Debretzeni and cellist, Sebastian Comberti), and with singers, Julia Doyle and Michael Chance. She also performs with the Nash Ensemble, Britten Sinfonia and the Sarasa Ensemble, a Cambridge USA-based collective of musicians. With Sarasa she has been able to extend her love of teaching to the development of a program which brings music, improvisation and poetry into facilities for youth offenders. Maggie’s recordings include Bach’s Goldberg Variations, 2 CDs of works for cello and fortepiano with Sebastian Comberti, Boccherini Sonatas with Steven Isserlis, Bach flute sonatas with Philippa Davies and “The Heart of Invention”, a CD of Haydn trios made with Trio Goya.
Maggie teaches all three keyboard instruments from her home and is professor of fortepiano at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The violinist Miranda Fulleylove is one of Britain’s most sought-after and versatile musicians. She is equally at home in classical and contemporary chamber music, as well as in music from the 16th century onwards, on both early and modern instruments. Since 2004 she has been leader of the Music Theatre Wales Ensemble, with whom she has performed and recorded widely. As an orchestral concert-master she has toured all over the world and regularly appears with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the London Sinfonietta and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Her chamber recordings range from Mozart’s Church Sonatas, through Mendelssohn’s Octet, to 20th century chamber operas and contemporary music still wet upon the page! Her Dorset series, ‘Chamber Music in Purbeck Houses’, in which she and colleagues discuss and perform chamber music from all periods in private houses and stately homes, has received wide acclaim and plays to packed houses with no publicity and a permanent waiting list. Upcoming performances include J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations arranged for string trio, a programme of piano trios using a newly restored Erard piano and recitals of 19th century trios and quartets with her newly-formed international chamber group, ‘Sans Souci’.
