THE BARBERINI TRIO

The up and coming Barberini Piano Trio prefers to perform in intimate settings rather than vast concert halls. Romanian pianist Cristian Sandrin, Japanese born violinist Eriko Nagayama and Scots cellist Hugh Mackay met as students at the Royal Academy of Music and bonded over their love of the chamber music repertoire.

PROGRAMME

MOZART Trio No. 5 in C major K 548 (1788) Allegro – Andante cantabile – Allegro Mozart's piano trios are ideal salon music. His late trios, of which K548 is one, are notable for giving both the violin and the cello a newly independent voice within the composition rather than simply accompanying the keyboard.

BEETHOVEN Trio in B-flat Major op 97 'Archduke' (1811) Allegro Moderato – Scherzo (allegro) – Andante cantabile, ma però con moto – Allegro moderato Beethoven dedicated this work to his great friend, pupil and patron the music-loving Archduke Rudolf of Austria. The composer indicated during a rehearsal that it should not be played gently, but with much energy and force.

BRAHMS Trio No. 3 op 101 in C minor (1886) Allegro energico – Presto non assai – Andante grazioso – Finale. Allegro molto Finally Brahms, the apotheosis of High Romanticism, treats us to a hypnotising narrative of nervous tension from the breathless opening bars to the complex rhythms that mark the conversations between the strings and the piano as they respond to each others thoughts.

ENSEMBLE IL GROVIGLIO WITH INSTANTE COLLECTIVE

Roma - Canzoni e Cantate

Music by Kapsberger, Corelli, Handel, Rossi and Stradella.

The land-bound island of Rome was a beacon of activity on a different course to the rest of humankind. Since opera was banned from the Vatican state, oratorio was produced to tell the biblical stories, and of course was a convenient way to get around the rules of the state, and commissioned and performed for the edification of the Roman clergy.

Of course, many masterpieces emerged from this strange little place, including many works by the famous GF Handel, who stopped off in Rome in the early 1700s and composed many works, including the famous Dixit Dominius, as well as many other cantatas for musical gatherings. Some of Marco’s favorite numbers are picked for this special compilation of songs and cantatas, accompanied by his lutenist Leo Brunet and joined by Istante Collective.

    - Marco Angioloni - tenor
    - Leo Brunet - theorbo
