Lawrence Power is joined by two distinguished colleagues for a magical evening of chamber music. The programme combines works for duo with two major piano trios including Brahms’ work which was inspired by the clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld. The composer prepared a viola part as a possible alternative instrumentation, and both scorings were rehearsed (the viola part being played by Joseph Joachim) prior to the premiere and publication of the work. The second half takes Jewish Song as the connective strand, concluding with Shostakovich’s heartfelt work, completed in 1944 in memory of one of the composer’s closest friends, Ivan Sollertinsky.
The concert is also being recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast in the Radio 3 in Concert evening slot in January.
