The Linos Piano Trio recently launched their latest project, ‘Stolen Music’, with a performance of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde Prelude, freshly stolen from the opera’s orchestral pit!
Their arrangement of the Tristan and Isolde prelude featured in their concert in Blair Atholl, which was in fact where the Linos Piano Trio gave their very first concert as Tunnell Trust artists when they toured Scotland in 2008. It was also their first concert back in the UK since winning the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.
The trio’s members, Konrad Elias-Trostmann (violin), Vladimir Waltham (cello) and Prach Boondiskulchok (piano), all contribute to the arrangements, working on a collective basis, and have really enjoyed the process! They see the results as being beyond transcriptions, but rather “re-imaginations of the orchestral score through the piano trio medium, allowing the work to be heard in a fresh new light and the potential of the piano trio to be fully stretched”.
Their next ‘Stolen Music’ work will be Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which will be premiered in London on 6th December at Conway Hall.
