The Trio will take their programme of Ravel, Saint-Saëns and Boulanger first to Great Comp Music Festival in Kent on 30th July, before travelling to Ambleside for the Lake District Summer Music Festival on 31st July, and going on to Church Stretton Festival in Shropshire on 1st August.
Before embarking on their UK travels, the Trio will appear live on BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ on Friday 29th July, where they will talk about their upcoming mini-tour and perform excerpts from the programme live on air. The episode will be available to listen online shortly after broadcast via this link.
Linos will perform the same programme for all three concerts, opening with two of their own ‘Stolen Music’ arrangements, part a project in which the players collaboratively re-imagine orchestral masterpieces as if they had been originally conceived for piano trio. French music has featured prominently in this project, and it is their re-workings of Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin and Saint Saëns’s Danse macabre that begin their summer programme. These arrangements will sit alongside two original works for piano trio: Lili Boulanger’s Deux Pièces en trio and Ravel’s only work in the genre, the Piano Trio in A minor.
