Renowned ensemble The Vienna Piano Trio give their final concerts as Turner Sims Associate Artists this spring, culminating in a celebratory concert where they will perform the world premiere of Austrian composer Frank Zabel’s 2nd Piano Trio inner voices, traces.

A special occasion, to mark the conclusion of the Vienna Piano Trio’s three years as Associate Artists, has as its centrepiece the world premiere of a new commission for the group by Austrian composer Frank Zabel. The concert ends with one of the works which Schumann composed in his so-called Year of Chamber Music, 1842. Written with his wife in mind – Clara was one of the performers to premiere it two years later – she described it as ‘a beautiful work, so youthful and fresh….’

To open we hear the trio which Haydn initially praised but then advised Beethoven to hold off publishing because it would be hard to understand and be badly received; Beethoven, who thought the third trio the best of the set, didn’t want to hear Haydn’s reasons, and ascribed his advice to jealousy or ill will.

Pre-concert talk with Frank Zabel 7pm
