BRIGHT LIGHTS TRIO
So-Ock Kim violin Thomas Carroll cello Simon Crawford-Phillips piano Beethoven Beethoven Trio in E flat Op 70 No 2. Martinu Trio No.1 Cinq pièces brèves Mendelssohn Trio No.1 in D minor Op.49 This final chamber concert in the Bright Lights series sees all three soloists joining forces in a piano trio featuring two of the best-loved works in the repertoire. Beethoven’s Trio Op.70 No.2 dedicated to Archduke Rudolf is his grandest and the première was almost Beethoven’s last public performance. The D minor Trio Op.49 was often performed by Mendelssohn and is characteristically spirited and fresh in style with broad, song-like melodies. Martinu developed the hallmarks of his style early in his career and this work from 1930 is influenced by ragtime, popular in his adopted city of Paris in the 1920s.
