Haydn Trio in G minor Hob.XV:19
Beethoven Trio in D op.70 no. 1 ‘Ghost’
To complement St Petersburg Symphony’s concert, English Piano Trio presents a programme that mirrors the sources of inspiration drawn on by Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky. Prokofiev was profoundly influenced by Haydn in the composition of his ‘Classical’ Symphony. Like Tchaikovsky, Beethoven drew on his admiration for Shakespeare, taking the witches’ scene from Macbeth as inspiration for the slow movement of the ‘Ghost’ piano trio.
