In a rare UK performance, Trio Concertante perform three of the most popular works for piano trio, culminating in the symphonic first trio by Johannes Brahms. The eerie-sounding second movement gave Beethoven's 'Ghost' trio its famous nickname, while Shostakovich's second trio, composed during World War Two, combines a similar mysterious quality (opening with high harmonics on the cello) with Jewish melodies and Shostakovich's trademark 'sardonic humour'.

Shostakovich | Trio No.2 in E minor Op.67
Brahms | Trio No.1 in B Op.8

The Sunday Concerts trace their history back to 1878 when the People's Concert Society was formed for the purpose of "increasing the popularity of good music by means of affordable concerts". The South Place Ethical Society acquired the concert series and, in 1929, had Conway Hall purpose built for them and, with the exception of the war years, the concerts seasons have continued ever since.
