Welcome to our 2016-2017 season
Trio Van Beethoven
Beethoven Piano Trio in G, Op. 1 No. 2
Peter Fribbins Piano Trio
Brahms Piano Trio in B, Op. 8
Clemens Zeilinger piano
Verena Stourzh violin
Franz Ortner cello
The Austrian Trio Van Beethoven makes its LCMS debut with two youthful works by their compatriots. Beethoven’s G major Piano Trio is the gentler middle child in the composer’s first opus of three piano trios, and remains as one of the most serene works that he ever wrote. Brahms’s B major Trio from 1889 is the revised version of a much earlier attempt dating back to 1854, and remains the only work that exists today in two published versions. Flanked by these is Peter Fribbins’ First Piano Trio, premiered in Vienna in 2004.
Pre-Concert Event: Jo Dee Yeoh (Solo cello) - Sunday 26th April, 5.20pm
J.S. Bach – Suite I in G major
V. Minuet I&II
J. Sibelius – Theme and Variations for Solo Cello
As a German prelude to the evening’s trio concert of Beethoven and Brahms I will be playing the most famous suite of J.S Bach’s solo suites for cello. This will be followed by Finnish composer J. Sibelius who was also influenced by Beethoven. This is particularly evident in this little-known piece for solo cello as he takes a simple theme and brings it to the forefront in several symphonic ways.
Jo Dee Yeoh was born in Australia and began playing the cello at the age of seven. She studied with Nelson Cooke and was a Young Academy Musician at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne. She regularly attends courses and masterclasses in Italy and France and has performed for Valter Despalj, Julian Lloyd Webber, Hans Jorg Jensen and Johannes Goritzki.

She is an active chamber and orchestral musician and has played in the Australian Youth Orchestra, RCM Symphony Orchestra and has led the RCM Philharmonic the International World Baccalaureate Orchestra.
