Jonathan Stone violin

Sholto Kynoch piano

There’s something grandly serene about the spacious piano melody that opens Beethoven’s last gem-studded piano trio: perhaps it is the way it falls to the fourth chord that gives it such assured calm. The wonderful Phoenix Piano Trio present a fascinating and magical music journey through German music, via JS Bach and Schumann, culminating in Beethoven’s powerful Archduke Trio, composed in 1811 and dedicated to Archduke Rudolph of Austria, the composer’s willing pupil and one of his staunchest supporters.

Elin Harries soprano
Carina Drury baroque cello

The practice of performing baroque songs with voice and bass alone has been abandoned, but was, in the 17th and 18th centuries, considered a viable alternative to keyboard accompaniment, creating a totally different sound world as the two lines, voice and bass, weave together.

Elin and Carina are both founder members of the Baroque ensemble ARCATA BAROQUE, which specializes in repertoire for soprano and bass continuo, with the harpsichordist, Nathaniel Mander. They have a particular interest in promoting English music and regularly perform at Handel House. Their series at Burgh House last year was recommended by Rob Cowen from Radio 3.
