Our very good friend Carlina Carr made a return visit with the two "boys", Warren Zielinski and Ian Burdge, to play another remarkable evening of piano trios. Mozart's trio in E K542 was full of charm and was followed by the lush scoring of Brahms' sumptous trio no. 3, Opus 101. After the interval, Shostakovich's second trio, Op 67, written in wartime and premiered in Leningrad in 1944, took us to a wholly different place, musically and emotionally. Warren warned that "shrapnel might fly" and the trio delivered a performance of great physicality that left one feeling drained. Once again we are so grateful to these players for bringing great chamber music to Marlow.
