The internationally celebrated Rosamunde Trio present three masterworks of the piano trio repertoire.

Beethoven’s famous Ghost Trio, with its remarkable slow movement, compared by Czerny to Shakespeare’s Hamlet, is followed by Shostakovich’s youthful C minor trio from the 1920s.

Their programme ends with the Smetana’s passionate piano trio, composed in the 1850s and first heralded as a masterpiece by none other than Franz Liszt.


FREE Pre-Concert Foyer Performance – Jobine Siekman (cello), 5.45pm

Ligeti Sonata for solo cello
JS Bach Cello Suite No. 6 in D, BWV1012

Dutch cellist Jobine Siekman is quickly building her career as an exceptional chamber musician and soloist. She has won prizes both as a soloist (National Cello Competition of Cellobiennale Amsterdam 2016) and with ensembles including the Alkyona Quartet and the Chloé Trio.

The lives of both Shostakovich and Ligeti were largely affected by the Soviet Union repression in the first half of 20th century. The piano trio by Shostakovich and the solo sonata by Ligeti were both written during the composers’ studies, but are both mature in style. However, even at this stage we can already hear the impact of the Soviet rule on their music. Bach used dance forms for most of the movements in his cello Suites, a tradition that would be continued by composers later, including Smetana, who used the tarantella as inspiration for the last movement of his piano trio.
