HAYDN Piano Trio in F sharp minor Hob.XV:26 (14’)
HUW WATKINS Piano Trio No.2 (c.25’)
Music in the Round co-commission with Presteigne Festival and Wigmore Hall for Leonore Piano Trio
MENDELSSOHN Piano Trio No.1 in D minor (30’)
The Leonore Trio – Tim Horton, Benjamin Nabarro and Gemma Rosefield – are now firmly established as one of the finest piano trios performing today. This concert continues their theme of the great 19th century works for trio, alongside those of the father of the piano trio, Joseph Haydn, and a brand-new commission created by the inimitable Huw Watkins. Mendelssohn’s first foray into the medium produced a masterpiece of passion, energy and lyricism.
