We begin in 19th Century Germany with Fanny Mendelssohn’s ‘Trio in D minor’, a magnificent work by the renowned German composer. With melodies that soar and emotions that run deep, this piece offers a glimpse into the turbulent emotional landscape of its creator.

Next, we venture into the contemporary realm with the power and subtlety of Joan Tower’s ‘Trio Cavany’. We proudly present a new commission by Kiwi composer Eva Bedggood, offering a fresh perspective and intrinsically relevant voice. Our musical odyssey concludes with Ethel Smyth’s impassioned piano trio, a powerful and evocative composition that showcases the depth of emotions and creative brilliance of the British composer at the beginning of her career.
