An Evening of Chamber Music with Nicola Benedetti
Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio
RAVEL Trio in A minor
TURNAGE Duo for Cello and Violin
SIERRA Piano Trio Butterflies Remember a Mountain
BRAHMS Piano Trio No.1 in B major, Op.8
Despite a glittering solo career which has earned her a worldwide reputation, Nicola Benedetti’s private passion is for chamber music. In her piano trio she teams up with her partner Leonard Elschenbroich and the masterly young Ukrainian pianist Sasha Grynyukfor a whole evening of musical magic between friends.
Ravel’s only piano trio is a bittersweet vision of rapturous poetry, written in the depths of the Great War, while Brahms’s B major Trio is the grandest of romantic outpourings by a young composer hopelessly in love.
In between, they play a new mini masterpiece by Arlene Sierra, and the virtuosic Duo created for them by Mark Anthony Turnage – bringing a personal touch to a very special evening of music-making.

"Benedetti’s trademark is her tone: sweet and clear in the upper register, honeyed in mid-range and velvety in her low notes"
