Conway Hall’s historic Sunday Concerts series is presenting its 2020 Autumn Season as a series of live online performances via Youtube Live, using state of the art live-stream equipment to give you the very best in audio and visual quality.
The Greenwich Trio has been described by Bernard Greenhouse as the “New Beaux Arts Trio.” It was formed in 2006 originally with cellist Stjepan Hauser. For the 2020 and 2021 seasons, the trio is embarking on a recording of the complete Brahms Trios at the Menuhin Hall. Their programme at Conway Hall will include two of these trios, originally featuring horn and clarinet but in Brahms’ own versions for the more common combination of violin, cello and piano.
