Programme Note by Bethan Morgan-Williams

"Datod is a musical exploration of controlled freedom. Like a helium balloon floating skyward, the music wanders untethered through the air. It drifts; it exists. But its direction is fixed and its demise is pre-destined."

Hannah Weirich and Ulrich Löffler about "Datod"

In the middle of the first lockdown, Bethan, whom we had met at Composer Collider Europe, sent us a duo for violin and piano, in case we knew what to do with it ... The premiere, like so many things at that time, had been cancelled.

When, a short time later, the first tentative opportunities arose to give small concerts to a reduced audience and our Concertini series was born, it was immediately clear to us that we wanted to premiere "Datod" and add it to our repertoire.
