Fidelio Trio

Royal Concert Hall, 7:00pm

Admission: £16.50 general / £5 under 18s

 

For the Nottingham Chamber Music Festival, the Fidelio Trio brings their vibrant energy to the Royal Concert Hall, performing a beautiful programme of music for piano trio by two monumental figures of the Romantic period: Clara Schumann and Camille Saint-Saëns.

 

Music includes

Clara Schumann - Piano Trio in G minor, op. 17

Camille Saint-Saëns - Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, op. 92

"I once believed that I possessed creative talent, but I have given up this idea; a woman must not desire to compose—there has never yet been one able to do it. Should I expect to be the one?" – Clara Schumann, 1839

Clara Schumann's passionate Piano Trio was written during her husband Robert Scumann's illness. While it was rare for a woman to become a significant composer in the European tradition of classical music before the 20th century, from a larger perspective of her multi-faceted musical life, it is clear that Clara Schumann was one of the most outstanding and influential female musicians of the 19th century. Whatever the context, sincerity or intent of Clara's words at the time, she would continue to compose, ultimately producing well over thirty works in various forms and, what is regarded as her greatest achievement, the Piano Trio in g minor, Op. 17, written in 1846.

French composer Camille Saint-Saëns is best known as the composer of “The Swan” from his Carnival of the Animals. Recognised for his talent by contemporaries Rossini, Berlioz, Liszt, and later by his student Gabriel Fauré, Saint-Saëns composed a rich output of chamber music, including his Piano Trio No. 2, which remains the epitome of French chamber music. At the heart of the trio is the stunning Andante movement, music that reflects feelings of isolation, beauty, reflection, and renewal. Recently recorded to rave reviews by the Fidelio Trio, the Piano Trio No. 2 comes to life in the beautiful acoustic of the Royal Concert Hall.
