A programme of romantic and contemporary repertoire from a piano trio known for the warmth and delicacy of its playing.
Dvořák’s second piano trio was written shortly after the death of his daughter and, turbulent and elegiac by turns, it stands as an honour to her memory. Suk’s Elegie is also a memorial piece, for a writer and poet of Bohemian legends, and is of striking beauty.
The third piece is Sir Andrzej Panufnik's remarkable trio - composed at the age of 19, of which he said: “without thought of public performance, I was trying not to control essential technicalities but to write a true musical composition containing some expressiveness of feeling and vitality”.
