Approx 1 hr (no interval)
Tom Poster & Friends: Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective
Over two nights, Tom Poster curates a sequence of concerts together with brilliant young musical collaborators.
Savitri Grier, violin | Ben Goldscheider, french horn | Tom Poster, piano
Robert Schumann: Three Romances for Horn and Piano, Op. 94
Clara Schumann: Three Romances for Violin and Piano, Op. 22
Brahms: Horn trio in E flat major, Op. 40
Clara Schumann was one of Europe’s finest professional pianists – she toured Scotland in 1867 – but her composing ambitions were sadly curtailed by contemporary social constraints. Her enchanting Romances, together with her husband Robert’s, pave the way for the magisterial Horn Trio by Johannes Brahms, a young protégé of both Robert and Clara. Written after a summer holiday in 1865, the Trio evokes the sounds of the beautiful German Black Forest region.
“A deep, eloquent tone, making every line sing, and all delivered with remarkable poise and flair.” The Birmingham Post on Savitri Grier
