Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor, Op. 66
Joseph Metral violin
Justine Metral cello
Victor Metral piano
The brothers and sister of the prize-winning Trio Metral join us from France for a delectable opening to the 2019 festival, beginning their programme at the Holywell Music Room with the distinct mixture of sadness and bonhomie that characterises Franz Schubert’s Piano Trio in E flat. Balancing Schubert’s exquisite second Trio are the dark secrets of Mendelssohn’s second, a work whose rugged appearance belies fire and lyricism, innocence and daring.
The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 10 pm.
