PCM 05: Benedetti, Grynyuk, Elschenbroich

Live from the Cadogan Hall in London, Nicola Benedetti (violin) is joined by Alexei Grynyuk (piano) and Leonard Elschenbroich (cello) to play music by Bach, Korngold and Brahms.

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

Popular young artist, Nicola Benedetti, is joined by two friends for a programme which ranges from solo violin to piano trio.

The programme begins with Benedetti alone on stage performing the famous Chaconne from Bach's Solo Violin Partita in D minor, one of the peaks of the violin repertoire not only technically but dramatically too. Benedetti is then joined by pianist Grynyuk in two arrangements from Korngold's opera 'Die tote Stadt' including the bittersweet melodies of Marietta's Song. Finally they are joined by cellist Elschenbroich for Brahms tightly argued final Piano Trio.

J.S. Bach: Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004 - Chaconne
Korngold: Die tote Stadt - Marietta's Song; Pierrot's Dance Song
Brahms: Piano Trio No. 3
