Vienna Piano Trio at LSO St Luke's.
Presented by Fiona Talkington.
The first of four concerts this week given by the Vienna Piano Trio as part of LSO St. Lukes 10th birthday celebrations.
Members of the trio live only a few minutes walk from several of the houses Beethoven lived in during his time in Vienna and therefore Beethoven is a composer that they feel particularly close to and often programme into their concerts. So it's not surprising they begin their concert series with two of the composer's works for piano trio, starting with his Variations on a theme from a musical play by Dittersdorf and follow that with the 'Archduke' trio, written in honour of his pupil and patron Archduke Rudolf.
Beethoven: Variations in E flat major Op 44
