At the request of the artist there has been a change to the advertised programme. Schubert’s Notturno in E Flat will replace the Schubert Adagio.
Chamber music is a vital cornerstone of Nicola Benedetti’s career, and since 2008 she has performed reguarly with her trio, featuring acclaimed soloists Leonard Elschenbroich (cello) and Alexei Gynyuk (piano). The three have established a unique musical rapport (‘an undeniable connection between performers and audience’ The Scotsman), and for this concert they perform their ‘signature’ work, the Trio by Tchaikovsky which, in an extraordinarily powerful set of variations, portrays different aspects of the composition’s beloved dedicatee Nikolai Rubinstein. They also play Schubert’s Trio No 1, a rich and varied work which includes one of the composer’s most justly celebrated slow movements.
This concert will finish at approximately 9.40pm
