The Atos Trio in a performance given at LSO St Luke's in London. Haydn: Piano Trio in E, H XV 28. Brahms: Piano Trio in B, Op 8.

Haydn Plus One. The four-part series of music by Haydn linked to that of other composers concludes with the ATOS Trio playing Haydn's Piano Trio in E, HobXV/28, and Brahms's Piano Trio in B, Op 8. Recorded at LSO St Lukes in London

Haydn: Piano Trio in E, HobXV/28
Brahms: Piano Trio in B, Op 8


Haydn's reputation as a 'composer's composer' may not do full justice to his music's warming mixture of ingenuity, humanity and sheer attractiveness, but it accurately reflects the esteem in which he has always been held by his contemporaries and successors. This concert is the last in a series of four recorded at LSO St Lukes in London, in which compositions by him in genres in which he was a seminal figure are placed alongside works by later composers who also held those genres dear. Haydn was the earliest master of the piano trio, and one of his superb late trios appears alongside the first of Brahms's three powerful examples of the form.

They are played by former Radio 3 New Generation Artists, the ATOS Trio.
