Trios come in all formats, with or without piano, uniting strings and winds in various combinations. Among the most venerable works in which a wind instrument is called upon to play the role usually given to a violin (Mozart’s “Kegelstatt”; Beethoven’s Op. 14; Brahms’ Op. 114), that instrument is a clarinet. Bohuslav Martinů, the eclectic Czech composer, wrote plenty of music for clarinet, but in the summer of 1944 he produced this trio, in which the more buoyant sound of the flute seems just right. Join us for this evening recital of chamber music rarely heard, from Martinů, Weber, and Poulenc, brought to life by cellist Guy Johnston, flautist Karen Jones, and pianist Edward Leung.
Programme to include:
Poulenc: Sonata for Flute and Piano
Weber Trio for flute, cello and piano, Op. 63
Martinů Trio for flute, cello and piano, H300
