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.
To round off our season, the Rautio Piano Trio offer a programme which grows throughout the evening! First, a work for trio by Bach, arranged by the trio’s resident pianist, Jan Rautio. They are then joined by special guest Robin Ashwell (Sacconi Quartet) to perform Schumann’s only piano quartet, then by South African double bass virtuoso Leon Bosch to bring the evening – and the season – to a joyous close with Schubert’s evergreen Trout quintet.

About the Rautio Piano Trio
The Rautio Piano Trio is an award-winning ensemble, known for their innovative and captivating performances. Alongside the cornerstones of the repertoire, the Trio presents imaginative programmes incorporating rarely-performed historic works.
The Trio has released two critically acclaimed discs for Resonus Classics. Their début disc features Mozart piano trios recorded on a fortepiano belonging to the late Christopher Hogwood. It was hailed by the Observer as ‘an impressive achievement’ and received multiple five-star reviews. The Trio’s latest release, described as ‘elegantly effervescent’ (Gramophone, 2018) includes the world premiere recording of Ferdinand Hiller’s Trio No. 6 in C minor alongside Beethoven and Schubert.
