Beethoven Piano Trio – ‘The Ghost’
Brahms Piano Trio no. 1 in b major op. 8
Two brilliant piano trios by Beethoven and Brahms performed in the heart of London by three of the UK’s leading chamber musicians in the stunning setting of St James’ Church by candlelight.
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
