Monte Piano Trio 9th Oct 2017 at the Bear Club Map
This season we are presenting four concerts in collaboration with London’s Conway Hall Sunday night chamber concerts. This synergy will enable us to welcome to Luton such groups as the Monte Piano Trio. Following on from our initiative last year to explore the work of significant female composers this will be an opportunity to hear more from American Amy Beach, whose lyrical Piano Trio, written in 1938, is a highly romantic work shot through with evocative moments of impressionism. This is also a chance to enjoy the first of many works by Dvořák throughout the season as we honour the work of musicians from Eastern Europe. His F minor piano trio is an inspired work and the Monte Trio’s Romanian born pianist Irina Botan will surely bring an authentic approach to this exhilarating music.
"An exceptional trio, passionate and perfectly matched. Their playing reveals the meaning and the beauty of the music with the professionalism, freshness and clarity only heard from the very top international groups." Radio Romania Muzical
