Lawson Trio - Haydn, Ravel, Powers, Reeves

In a live concert from the Purcell Room in London's Southbank Centre, the Lawson Trio plays music by Haydn and Ravel and three new works written specially for it.

Live from the Purcell Room, London

Presented by Martin Handley

The Lawson Trio frames three premieres by leading UK composers with two of the greatest works in the trio repertoire - Haydn's exuberant, enduringly popular Gypsy Trio and the virtuoso Trio by Ravel. They premiere works written for them by Anthony Powers and Camden Reeves, and are joined by students from the Junior Royal Academy of Music for the London premiere of Cheryl Frances Hoad's Olympic-inspired work for double piano trio.
