Growth Rings is a collaboration between The Willow Consort - a professional choir based in Denmark, English violinist Daniel Pioro, and Copenhagen-based composer Nick Martin.

Pioro and The Willow Consort will perform two concerts in Denmark, in September 2020, with a repertoire that includes a performance of J S Bach’s Partita no. 2 and a world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Nick Martin.


 J.S. Bach - Partita for Violin No 2 in D Minor (BWV 1004) 

with interspersed chorales according to Professor Helga Thoene


Nick Martin - Growth Rings 

World premiere

The two pieces in the programme form a pair that compliment one another; Martin’s ‘Growth Rings’ contains a chaconne that is inspired by the fifth movement of Bach’s Partita. Both combine a virtuosity for the solo violin, with a contemplative choir music that express a wide range of emotions.


Daniel Pioro is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the most groundbreaking violinists of his generation. As concerto soloist he has performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of St John’s Smith Square, the London Contemporary Orchestra, and last year he played The Lark Ascending with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at the Cheltenham Festival. 2019/20 includes a Wigmore Hall debut recital, a new concerto by Jonny Greenwood to be premiered with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at the BBC Proms, and a new concerto written for him by Tom Coult to be premiered with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall. In March 2019 his debut album, Dust, of music for solo violin and electronics was released on the Bedroom Community label.

The Willow Consort started life as one of the UK's finest young professional vocal ensembles. Praised for its imaginative programming and expressive performances - we are committed to sharing neglected repertoire to a wide audience. We have further aims to combine musicians from multiple nationalities and backgrounds to join together in a common goal of delivering exceptional concerts. So far we have worked with musicians from The UK, Australia, America, France, Mexico and Norway.

Nick Martin is a composer living in Copenhagen. He holds a Bachelor in Composition from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and a Masters degree in Composition from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. Though he grew up playing and studying classical music, Martin has always had a broad taste, with a particular passion for folk and early music. His music is highly personal, often expressing melancholy and longing.
