Haydn Trio in C Hob.XV:21 Beethoven Trio in B flat Op 97 ‘Archduke’
We look forward to welcoming back Leamington Music favourites, the Leonore Piano Trio, to the Royal Pump Rooms for the first time since May 2019 – the last Festival we were able to put on there!
This delightful programme brings works by two of Robert Simpson’s most championed composers. Simpson referenced Haydn’s music in many of his own works, and this joyful Trio was one of the last that Haydn wrote.
The ‘Archduke’, too, was the last of Beethoven’s contributions to the genre. It is a grand work of vast proportion and emotional depth, which can surely go to show why Simpson – and so many others – held Beethoven’s music in such high esteem.
