“What else is in a name? If you are the violinist Alison Kelly evidently the misdirection of love letters – to a cellist called Alison Kelly, one of her student contemporaries. Undeterred by these postal indiscretions the two Kellys have formed a trio. ‘The pianist’, they say ‘thought of changing her name by deed poll to form the Alsion Kelly Trio but she is in fact Lyn Garland.’ As Triangulus, they give their first public concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields at lunch-time on 6 February, playing music by Beethoven and Clara Schumann.”
Robert Maycock

Lyn Garland

Lyn Garland won prizes and scholarships and a first class honours degree, from Melbourne University Conservatorium. She was a regular chamber music performer, solo recitalist and concerto pianist for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on radio, television and the concert platform. In London she has given solo recitals at Wigmore Hall and St. John’s Smith Square; Schubertiades at Sothebys and Bach at the Windsor Festival. Solo recordings include Images of Childhood, a collection of miniatures, French Collection, works by Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Poulenc and a set of three CDs with cellist Alison Moncrieff Kelly.

Alison Moncrieff Kelly

Alison Moncrieff Kelly won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, where she was a student of Florence Hooton, winning the Sir James Caird Travelling Scholarship and the Countess of Munster Award. She then studied with Pierre Fournier in Geneva. Alison made her South Bank debut as a Park Lane Group Young Artist in 1985 and has since played throughout Europe and the British Isles as a soloist and chamber musician. In 1998 she made her Australian debut with Triangulus. For Meridian she has recorded the complete cello and piano music of Charles Villiers Stanford.

Alison Kelly

Alison Kelly emerged from the Royal Academy of Music with the highest violin award, the Marjory Hayward Prize. She studied with Ralph Holmes and Emanuel Hurwitz and in Australia with Nelli Skolnikova and won many awards and fellowships including the Countess of Munster and Ian Fleming Charitable Trust. In a diverse and flourishing career she leads and directs as soloist the chamber orchestra of the City of London Sinfonia, English Classical Players and Vivaldi Concertante.

After ten years Alison Kelly left Triangulus. Lyn and Alison (cello) invited Roland Roberts to complete the Hummel Piano Trio series.

Madeleine Mitchell joined Triangulus in 2000 for recitals in London and Oxford and to record the CD of three Hummel violin and piano sonatas and the variation for cello and piano, all researched from archive material at the Bodleian and British Libraries. If you have not heard this recording you have never heard this music.
