The Leonore Trio presents the complete original works for piano trio by Beethoven, alongside those by British composers David Matthews and Huw Watkins. The cycle is part of the ‘Curated Weeks’ series at Kings Place and will start on Friday 13th March 2015, continuing throughout 2015 with concerts in April, October and November. For more information, please click here.
As well as some of the best-known and much-loved music, the Leonore Trio will play some of Beethoven’s early forays into the genre, giving a rare insight into his formative compositional processes. The cycle will also include the Kakadu Variations, often overlooked in favour of the established Canon.
David Matthews’ three Piano Trios span twenty years of his distinguished career and these concerts provide a rare opportunity to hear them alongside the composer that has perhaps influenced him the most. The last programme will include the Piano Trio by another leading British composer, Huw Watkins.
Don’t miss the Leonore Trio live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune on Tuesday 10th March at 4.30pm. Listen in here.
