Michael Collins (clarinet), Guy Johnston (cello) and Leon McCawley (piano) perform music by Beethoven, Gliere, Rachmaninov and Brahms at the Hay Festival 2013.

In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, clarinettist Michael Collins, cellist Guy Johnston and pianist Leon McCawley come together to perform a varied programme of works. These include an early trio by Beethoven dedicated to one of his first aristocratic patrons, and a trio by Brahms which was inspired by hearing the clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld rehearse. Also included is one of Rachmaninov's most famous works, his Vocalise, and an intimate late-romantic miniature by Glière.
