Fishguard and Machynlleth Festivals 2017: Rachel Podger, Anna Tsybuleva, Vienna Piano Trio

From Welsh music festivals in Fishguard and Machynlleth, Rachel Podger, Marcin Swiatkiewicz, Anna Tsybuleva and the Vienna Piano Trio perform Fontana, CPE Bach and Schumann.

This week's concerts are from festivals held in North Pembrokeshire and the picturesque mid-Wales market-town of Machynlleth. The Fishguard International Music Festival was established in 1969, and takes place in a series of locations in the area. Recorded in the Oak Hall at Rhosygilwen Mansion in the rural landscape on the borders of Ceredigion and Carmarthen, the Russian pianist Anna Tsybuleva performs CPE Bach's Sonata in G minor composed in 1746. Every August since 1986, the Tabernacle in Machynlleth has been home to an international music festival. Today Rachel Podger and Marcin Świątkiewicz perform music by the little known Italian violinist and composer Giovanni Battista Fontana, his Sonata Seconda. Also the Vienna Piano Trio perform Schumann's Trio No 1 in D minor, composed in 1847 and marked from its opening to be performed with energy and passion.

Presented by Christopher Cook.
