The acclaimed Swiss Piano Trio visit the UK

Regular followers of this blog will be aware that I have greatly admired the recordings by the Swiss Piano Trio on Audite.

Winners of the first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta (Italy) in 2003 and at the Johannes Brahms Competition (Austria) in 2005, as well as the Swiss Ambassador’s Award at Wigmore Hall that same year, this acclaimed chamber ensemble will be touring the UK in October and November including 2012.

They will be appearing at the City Halls in Glasgow on 19th October 2012 where the

Scottish Chamber Orchestra will be conducted by Baldur Brönnimann in the premiere of Lyell Cresswell’s Triple Concerto commissioned by the Swiss Piano Trio.

They will then take this programme to the Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh on 20th October 2012 before appearing at the Scunthorpe Concert Society in North Lincolnshire on 2nd November 2012 where they will play Mozart’s Piano Trio in C major KV 548, Schumann’s Phantasiestücke, Op. 88 and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio D minor, Op. 49.

They will conclude their UK tour with the same works by Mozart, Schumann and Mendelssohn at London’s Wigmore Hall on 4th November 2012.
The Swiss Piano Trio’s recording of Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio D minor, Op. 49 was the subject of my blog of 28th April 2012
Audite advise me that works by Robert and Clara Schumann will feature on the Swiss Piano Trio’s next SACD due for release in spring 2013.
