Masterworks Concert 66
Chopin Sonata in b flat, opus 35 (Marche Funèbre)
Smetana Piano Trio in g, opus 15
Emma Lisney violin
Joy Lisney cello
James Lisney piano
The Masterworks debut of the Lisney Trio, in Smetana’s romantic and lyrical opus 15. Written at the age of thirty one (in response to the loss of his daughter Bedriska), it is the first work to show the full force of the composer’s maturity.
Likewise, darkness haunts all four movements of Chopin’s celebrated Sonata opus 35, one of the most powerful and affecting of works in the piano repertoire.
Schubert’s Sonata in B, D 575 provides a suitable prelude to this dramatic programme; a boldly experiment work, shot through with vivacious dance rhythms and bohemian spirit.
Masterworks presents the finest chamber music in performances by internationally recognised artists.
Breathtaking, unique and radiating regency refinement, Pittville Pump Room is monument to the more than 100 years of fame Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town, and perhaps the most famous example of regency architecture in the area.
