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.
Beethoven: Piano Trio in Eb Op. 1 No. 1
Wolfgang Rihm: Fremde Szene III
Interval: Interval Music
Schubert: Piano Trio No. 1 in Bb D898.
