HAYDN Piano Trio No.39 Gypsy Rondo
DVOŘÁK Piano Trio No.4 Dumky
BRAHMS Piano Trio No.1
Three blockbuster trios form this spectacular evening from the inimitable Leonore Piano Trio: Haydn, creator of the piano trio, is full of quotations of folk music and dramatic effects borrowed from ‘gypsy’ music. Dvořák’s beloved Dumky trio also plays with folk tunes, contrasting the melancholic with the triumphant building towards a vigorous dancing finale. Brahms’s early but highly personal trio is by turns strange and powerful, prayerful and fantastical.
“with energy that could be bottled and sold as a tonic for the times” **** BachTrack, September 2021
HAYDN Piano Trio Hob XV:21 (14′)
DVOŘÁK Piano Trio in F minor Op.65 (40′)
After their best-selling series of concerts featuring Beethoven’s piano trios, Benjamin Nabarro, Gemma Rosefield and Tim Horton begin a new cycle in which some of the greatest piano trios of the 19th century are paired with the composer who almost single-handedly invented the form: Joseph Haydn. These concerts will dazzle and delight with their sheer range of emotions; definitely not to be missed!
“High virtuosity all round – superb light, dazzling backgrounds from Tim Horton, searing intensity of tone from violinist Benjamin Nabarro and cellist Gemma Rosefield… terrific stuff.” BBC Music Magazine ****
