Schubert, Beethoven, Kapralova

Ian Skelly presents choral music by Schubert, Beethoven's Piano Trio No 7 (Archduke) and a rare performance of Vitezslava Kapralova's Concertino.

Ian Skelly presents two beautiful sequences of Schubert choral music recorded at the Styriarte Festival, Graz, and the great hall of Thun castle in the canton of Berne is a suitably grand setting for Beethoven's Archduke Trio. And there's an all too rare chance to hear a concertino by Vitezslava Kaprálová, born a hundred years ago and who at her death at the age of twenty five left a remarkable body of works which suggest that she was destined to become one of the leading composers of her generation.
