MOZART Piano Trio in E, K. 542
WEIR Piano Quartet
BRAHMS Piano Quartet in G minor, Op. 25
The Gould Trio last visited Portsmouth Chamber Music four years ago with clarinettist Robert Plane when they gave a spellbinding performance of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time.
This time they are joined by violist Gary Pomeroy from the Heath Quartet who played here in May 2013. Brahms’ G minor piano quartet is his most popular chamber work with its whirlwind Hungarian Dance finale. Judith Weir has become almost a household name over the last 20 years or so, being awarded a CBE in 2005, and succeeding Sir Peter Maxwell Davies as Master of the Queen’s Music in 2014.
