THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Christoph Eggner, piano Georg Eggner, violin Florian Eggner, cello BEETHOVEN Piano Trio Op.70 No.1 ‘Ghost’ SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Trio No.1 in C minor RAVEL Piano Trio in A minor On their first visit to Lakeside the Eggner brothers captivated the audience with their musical energy and artistry. This concert programme further explores a wide emotional range. Beethoven’s Piano Trio Op.70 No.1 earned its nickname from the eerie second movement. Shostakovich’s first piano trio written at the age of 17 was dedicated to Tanya Glivenko with whom Shostakovich was in love. There is a romantic intensity to the work but it nonetheless introduces elements of the grotesque which were to become more prominent in his compositional maturity. Ravel’s Piano Trio was completed just as war broke out in 1914. The colouristic work draws inspiration from Malay verse forms and Basque folk music written within a highly complex musical structure. The concert finishes at approximately 9.05pm
