Wigmore Hall Mondays: Anthony Marwood, Lawrence Power, Simon Crawford-Phillips
Live from Wigmore Hall in London, Anthony Marwood (violin), Lawrence Power (viola) and Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano) perform music by Rebecca Clarke, Martinu and Brahms.
Sarah Walker presents a programme of chamber music for violin, viola and piano, live from Wigmore Hall, performed by Anthony Marwood (violin), Lawrence Power (viola) and Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano).
Rebecca Clarke's "Dumka" was written in 1940 but only recently published - a deeply felt piece which quotes from Brahms. Martinu's "Three Madrigals" date from 1947 and take their inspiration from Bohemian-Moravian folk music and also the rhythms of the English madrigal style which Martinu loved. And finally, Brahms's Trio in E flat major of 1865 was originally composed for natural horn, violin and piano, but the composer provided an alternative version in which the viola takes the place of the horn.
