Rachel Podger, Vienna Piano Trio

From Machynlleth music festival, Rachel Podger joins Marcin Swiatkiewicz to perform Correlli's La Folia, and the Vienna Piano Trio perform Beethoven's famous Archduke trio.

This week's concerts are from festivals held in North Pembrokeshire and the picturesque mid-Wales market-town of Machynlleth. Every August since 1986, the Tabernacle in Machynlleth has been home to an international music festival. Today Rachel Podger joins Marcin Świątkiewicz to perform Correlli's La Folia first published in 1700, and based on a popular European musical theme set by over one hundred and fifty composers. Also from the Machynlleth festival, the Vienna Piano Trio perform Beethoven's famous Archduke Trio, a work whose extraordinary power and range belies the drawing-room proportions of its simple instrumentation.

Presented by Christopher Cook.
