The second recital will be given by The Avalon Trio, comprising three exceptional young British students from the Royal Academy of Music – Benji Lock (piano), Louis Solon (violin) and Sebastian Williams (cello). The trio was formed whilst its members were all pupils at the Purcell School where they were awarded the Contemporary Music Prize. They will be performing two works, the first written at the beginning of one composer’s career, the second in the last year of the other composer’s life: Rachmaninov’s ‘Trio Elegiaque No. 1’ written when the composer was only 19 years old, and unusual in that it is in just one rather than the usual three or four movements, and Franz Schubert’sPiano Trio No. 1’, an unusually large scale work taking around 40 minutes in total to perform.

PROGRAMME

Sergei Rachmaninov: Trio Elegiaque No. 1

Franz Schubert: Piano Trio No. 1
