Trio Jean Paul - Beethoven, Wolfgang Rihm, Schubert

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

The German ensemble Trio Jean Paul combines two outstanding works of the piano trio repertoire with a piece by one of Germany's foremost composers of this generation. Wolfgang Rihm's Fremde Szenen is a work of beguiling eloquence and intensity, directly inspired by Schumann. The players preface this with the young Beethoven's Piano Trio in E flat, a strikingly assured creation.
The programme concludes with the first of Schubert's monumental late piano trios, a magnificent work showing the composer at the height of his powers.
