Thursday 4th April 2013. CZIFFRA TRIO (Sophie Dolman, piano, Elizabeth Stahlmann, violin, Herrick Hayes, cello). A much anticipated appearance by locally-based professionally trained musicians in an ambitious programme dominated by Schubert’s E flat Piano Trio, with its particularly beautiful slow movement. Also included are the E minor Trio of Haydn, and – on a lighter note – an excerpt from American Paul Schoenfield’s Café Music. About 65’.
Thursday 11th April 2013. VATCHE JAMBAZIAN, piano. This prize-winning Australian pianist gives every indication of being rather special. Haydn’s intense B minor Sonata (no 32), Schumann’s Kinderszenen, two Schubert Impromptus and Chopin’s B flat minor Scherzo: what could be a more self-recommending programme?
Thursday 18th April 2013. ALETHEIA DUO (Paolo Delucchi, violin, Albert Lau, piano). The first of three concerts featuring Italian violinist Paola Delucchi as a chamber musician (see also 9th May, 6th June). Here she is playing with the Hong Kong-born pianist Albert Lau in two popular French sonatas – Franck and Ravel – and Brahms’ exhilarating ‘FAE’ Scherzo.
Thursday 25th April 2013. BEDRISKA TRIO (Panaretos Kryriatzidis, piano, Manuel Arellano Bover, violin, Miriam Wakeling, cello). A warm welcome to this prize-winning ensemble, formed in 2011 by postgraduates at Trinity Laban, serving the rich fare of two major works: Beethoven’s early but hugely ambitious E flat Trio op 1/1 and Brahms’ C major Trio op 87.
Thursday 2nd May 2013. SARAH OLIVER, cello, SALLY HALSEY, piano. Two new guests: Sarah is currently a postgraduate student at Trinity Laban under Natalie Clein. Bruch’s beautiful Kol Nidrei is framed by two of the major sonatas in the repertoire, Beethoven’s C major op 102/1 and the Shostakovich.
Thursday 9th May 2013. ARCHE TRIO (Albert Lau, piano, Paola Delucchi, violin, Sacha McCalloch, cello). The programme includes two great St Mary’s favourites, the beautiful Dumky Trio of Dvořák and the powerful Shostakovich E minor Trio – one of the last century’s greatest chamber works (another performance of this on 11th July), along with a tango by Piazzolla. Allow 75 mins.
