How many voices do you need for an interesting musical conversation? This programme shows how composers from the 19th to the 21st centuries have risen to the challenges of trio writing and in the process created some of their most memorable music – from the highly individual sonorities of Brahms to Shostakovich’s epic use of the familiar piano trio (violin, cello and piano). The concert will also feature work by one of Britain’s most exciting young composers, Charlotte Bray.
