Schubert Trio No 1 in B flat D898
The members of the Leonore Piano Trio met in Ensemble 360, which has been performing regularly for Leamington Music since it was founded in 2006. The Trio emerged in 2012 and since then has appeared regularly in Leamington Music Festivals and made a series of acclaimed recordings, mostly of composers deserving more exposure such as Arensky, Lalo, David Matthews, Pixis, Rimsky-Korsakov and Taneyev. The Leonore’s rendition of the trio by Lalo in the 2017 Festival went down very well, and this year’s offering of the first of Schubert’s sublime trios is preceded by Arensky’s wonderfully Romantic first trio from 1894.
