WHAT'S ON / Joshua Bell, Steven Isserlis & Dénes Várjon
Joshua Bell: violin
Steven Isserlis: cello
Dénes Várjon: piano
Schumann: Drei Romanzen Op 94
Mendelssohn: Piano Trio No 2 in C minor Op 66
Clara Schumann: Romances Op 22
Brahms: Piano Trio No 1 in B Op 8 (1854 version)
Three of today’s most admired musicians – each an international soloist in his own right, and with a long history of accomplished chamber performances together – bring the 2017 Queen’s Hall concerts to a touchingly Romantic close.
US violinist Joshua Bell makes the third of his three International Festival appearances, joined by British cellist Steven Isserlis – acclaimed for his exceptional two-concert survey of Beethoven’s cello music at the 2016 International Festival – and powerful Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon.
They perform a quartet of lyrical works, all written within a few years of each other – from delicate, song-like Romances by Robert and Clara Schumann, to the turbulent drama of Mendelssohn’s Second Piano Trio and the almost symphonic sweep of Brahms’s passionate Piano Trio No 1.
