Terra Invisus translates new music, a fusion of free improvisation, written text and traditional scores, into narratives and soundscapes that push boundaries of the classical genre. The contemporary music trio, featuring Milda Vitartaitė (piano), Alex Lyon (clarinets), and Rebecca Burden (cello), is known for forward-thinking live performances and collaborations with both young and established composers.

A rising name on London’s contemporary music scene, this is part of  a tour across England to launch ‘Visions’—the “audacious” new album from Terra Invisus. Seven new commissions are presented alongside Visions after Goya — an evocative work by the renowned British composer Martin Suckling which has sparked the trio’s further exploration of sonic possibilities with no defined limits.

The programme will include selected pieces from the new album alongside ground-breaking contemporary classical works, Balkan dances, and original arrangements of Scottish folk tunes and Penguin Café Orchestra numbers.

Rebecca regularly performs with the London Contemporary Orchestra. Her eclectic style has earned her performances at top venues across the UK such as the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican.

Alex is a member of the award-winning folk collective Mishra and regularly collaborates with Indian Classical Vocalist, Deepa Nair Rasiya.

Milda, a native of Lithuania, has performed and introduced her music in various Lithuanian festivals. She’s often involved in curating multidisciplinary performance projects.
