The Rautio Piano Trio’s concert of 19th-century German masterworks begins with Beethoven’s famous Ghost Trio and closes with Brahms’s G minor Piano Quartet and its exuberant Hungarian-inspired Finale. In between comes a work by Ferdinand Hiller, a pupil of Hummel and a prolific compose who knew many of the famous German musicians of his age.

Kasia Ziminska is a violinist and violist committed to exploring repertoire ranging from early to contemporary experimental. Today she performs Bach’s Violin Partita No. 2 in D minor (Chaconne) and his Cello Suite No. 1 in G, which tie in to the German theme of the Rautio Piano Trio’s programme. Bacewicz’ Kaprys Polski and Enescu’s Menetrier Op. 28 are two folk-inspired works which correspond with the folklore explored in the final movement of the Brahms Piano Quartet.
