    The Barbican Piano Trio (Maidment Building)

    The Barbican Piano Trio is regarded as one of the UK’s leading ensembles with a reputation for stimulating performances, breadth of repertoire and exceptional audience rapport. Shortly after it was formed, the Trio won the South East Arts Young Musicians’ Platform which led to concerts throughout the region and a recording contract with ASV.

    Two years later it won the Royal Overseas League Ensemble Prize and was selected for the Park Lane Group’s Young Artists and 20th Century Music Series. Within three years the Trio was broadcasting on BBC Radio 3 and the World Service as well as on TV and radio in Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington DC and in Bulgaria.

    The Trio performs regularly at London’s Wigmore Hall and their cycle of the complete Beethoven piano trios featured in the Master Concert Series, receiving stunning feedback.
    Please do come along and enjoy this spectacular Trio as they perform a delightful programme that will include works by Haydn, Fauré and Tchaikovsky.

    Kindly sponsored by Mary Allen
