The Divertimento Piano Trio

About

Mary Eade – violin, Vicky Evans – cello, Margaret Lynn - piano

Clara Schumann - Piano Trio in G minor, Op 17

Robert Schumann - Fantasiestücke for Piano Trio, Op 88

Franz Schubert – Piano Trio in Eb, D929

2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann, a remarkable musician-pianist-composer whose achievements had been generally overshadowed by that of her husband Robert Schumann. The Divertimento Piano Trio pays tribute to this great artist in a concert featuring one of her finest works, the G minor Piano Trio Op 17, written when she was 27 years old, and heard in London for the first time in 1873 on one of her frequent concert tours to England. Complementing the G minor Trio are two works that Clara knew intimately and performed often - Robert Schumann’s Fantasiestücke Op.88, his earliest work for piano trio, and Schubert’s magnificent E-flat Trio D929. 

Mary, Vicky and Margaret have been making music together as the Divertimento Trio for almost 10 years.  It is an activity that they love, and they are happiest when sharing their music with an audience.  The ensemble of violin, cello and piano has been blessed by the attention of some of the greatest, and some of the less well-known, composers down the ages and so, when planning a concert, they are fortunate to have a very large body of truly glorious chamber works to draw on.  The variety of composition makes programming of particular interest to them and they enjoy explaining to an audience the reasons for their choice of the works they will be playing.  They firmly believe that interaction with an audience is an important element in the enjoyment of a concert performance and in this sense the participation of their audience brings them their greatest pleasure.
