Re-inventing the Trio – Linos Piano Trio at Barnes Music Festival

In keeping with the festival’s theme “Music and Invention” the Linos Piano Trio take their ‘Re-inventing the Piano Trio’ programme to Barnes Music Festival on the 19th March at 7:30 pm. First Prize and Audience Prize winner of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2015, the Linos Piano Trio is increasingly recognised as one of Europe’s most creative and dynamic trios. Drawing on the rich and varied cultural and musical backgrounds of its members, which encompass five nationalities, the Linos Piano Trio possesses a colourful and distinctive musical voice, as will be apparent in this fascinating and highly enjoyable concert.

The journey starts with the dawn of the piano trio, where C. P. E. Bach displays his art of invention in the floridly ornamented, fantasy-like keyboard Sonata, accompanied by violin and cello. It ends with the ensemble’s re-invention of the piano trio: collaboratively, they reimagined the orchestral colours of three French masterpieces to create more personal and intimate versions for a chamber setting. Debussy’s symphonic poem Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faune marks an important turning point in European music and was considered by Boulez to be the “beginning of modern music”. Dukas’ ever popular Sorcerer’s Apprentice was featured in Disney’s 1940 creation of Fantasia. And finally the uncannily haunting La Valse by Ravel, a kind of proto-post-modernist take on the dance: “the birth, decay, and destruction of a musical genre: the waltz” (George Benjamin).

Barnes Music Festival: London – 19 March | 7:30 pm at St. Mary’s Church, Barnes
