Thanks to everyone who joined our packed audience last Saturday for a fabulous evening of Baroque music performed by the youthful and vibrant Convivio at St Michael’s. Here’s a short video glimpse of that memorable evening.
So what’s next…?
Coming up on 16 October is the Albany Piano Trio and an evening of music by Beethoven, Turina, Dvořák and Judith Bingham.
The title of this concert comes from the name of the work by Judith Bingham OBE: The Orchid and its Hunters. This was a commission the group made in 2015 for International Women’s Day.
Prior to this we open the concert with an engaging early work by Beethoven. Later in the programme there is a a terrific chamber work by Joaquin Turina. Circulo is a three movement fantasia for Piano, Violin and Cello.
We conclude with one of the most enduring pieces for this genre with Dvořák’s 4th Piano Trio in E minor – among the composer’s best-known works.
Also known as the ‘Dumky Trio’, a Slavic / Ukrainian term which relates to the epic ballads of captive people. Dvořák masterful user of this dumka form contrasts a brooding, introspective composition with alternating cheerful sections.
