The great Romantics knew that when you combine a piano with two virtuoso string players, you unleash powerful emotions. Beethoven’s Trio Op.1 No.3 is so impetuous that his teacher Haydn urged him not to print it – and Mendelssohn’s Trio No.2 is even stormier. Chamber music on the grandest scale, played by the award-winning young Trio Isimsiz.
This concert will finish at approximately 3pm.
Beethoven Piano Trio in C minor Op.1 No.3
Mendelssohn Piano Trio No.2 in C minor Op.66
