Pro Corda is a music school like no other. It trains young musicians from aged 8 upwards in the art of playing chamber music. But its belief is that chamber music is so much more than just an instrumental or performance skill.
The showcase tells the story of Pro Corda from its youngest students through to those who are now training to be tomorrow’s chamber music educators, through to those whose adult lives have been shaped by chamber music. It is the story of chamber music at the heart of lives, not just on the concert platform. All proceeds will go directly to the Pro Corda scholarship fund to enable those who cannot afford course fees to access this unique and exceptional training.
Beethoven Piano Trio – ‘The Ghost’
Brahms Piano Trio no. 1 in b major op. 8

The West End’s definitive chamber music series continues in 2020 with a season of five concerts showcasing the finest chamber music of Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. The Piccadilly Chamber Music Series aims to give an exciting new platform for the world’s greatest classical music in a highly accessible format in the heart of London.
This evening’s concert features two of the greatest works in the piano trio repertoire: Beethoven’s “Ghost Trio” takes the lister on an exhilarating journey of beauty and drama, written at the height of the composer’s creative powers. This is contrasted with the heavily romantic Piano Trio in B major, by a young Brahms combining virtuosity with beautiful singing melodies shared between all three instruments
