Vienna Piano Trio

Saturday 28th October 2017, 7:30pm

Pre-concert talk with the artists at 6:30pm

Venue: John Innes Centre

  • Programme:
  • Haydn: Trio in B flat, H.XV/20
  • Wolfgang Rihm: Fremde Szene No.1
  • Schumann: Trio D minor, Op.63

The prolific German composer Wolfgang Rihm has long been fascinated by the music of Schumann, and his series of ‘Fremde Szene’ pieces pay homage to Schumann's piano trios, and in particular the impassioned Trio in D minor.

Haydn's late trios are worthy companion-pieces to his great string quartets, and they contain a wealth of undiscovered treasures. The Vienna Piano Trio has long championed all three composers.
