Chamber music by Schumann, Brahms & Mendelssohn
Saturday 26 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Joshua Bell Violin
Steven Isserlis Cello
Dénes Várjon Piano

Schumann Drei Romanzen Op 94
Mendelssohn Piano Trio No 2 in C minor Op 66
Clara Schumann Romances Op 22
Brahms Piano Trio No 1 in B Op 8 (1854 version)

Three of today’s most admired musicians – each an international soloist in his own right, and with a long history of accomplished chamber performances together – bring the 2017 Queen’s Hall concerts to a touchingly Romantic close.

US violinist Joshua Bell makes the third of his three International Festival appearances, joined by British cellist Steven Isserlis – acclaimed for his exceptional two-concert survey of Beethoven’s cello music at the 2016 International Festival – and powerful Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon.

They perform a quartet of lyrical works, all written within a few years of each other – from delicate, song-like Romances by Robert and Clara Schumann, to the turbulent drama of Mendelssohn’s Second Piano Trio and the almost symphonic sweep of Brahms’s passionate Piano Trio No 1.
