Schumann Plus performed by the Leonore Piano Trio

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents Schumann Plus - a live series of concerts from St David's Hall, Cardiff, today featuring the Leonore Piano Trio.

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents Schumann Plus, a series of concerts broadcast live from St David's Hall, Cardiff, focusing on the music of Robert Schumann, plus works by lesser-known composers including Doreen Carwithen, Henriëtte Bosmans, Ruth Gipps and Susan Spain-Dunk.

In the final concert this week broadcast live from St David’s Hall in Cardiff, the Leonore Piano Trio perform Schumann’s four movement Fantasiestücke, completed in 1842 when the composer was focused on a number of chamber works that year. In this work Schumann experiments with form, composing a four movement piano trio, but with shorter and more whimsical movements. The concert concludes with music by the Dutch composer Henriëtte Bosmans, who composed her three movement Piano Trio in 1921, a period when she’d been studying with Arnold Schoenberg.
