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.
