In a rare UK performance, Trio Concertante perform three of the most popular works for piano trio, culminating in the symphonic first trio by Johannes Brahms. The eerie-sounding second movement gave Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ trio its famous nickname, while Shostakovich’s second trio, composed during World War Two, combines a similar mysterious quality (opening with high harmonics on the cello) with Jewish melodies and Shostakovich’s trademark ‘sardonic humour’.
