Bridge Phantasy Piano Quartet
Vaughan Williams Piano Quintet
Schubert ‘Trout’ Quintet
Vaughan Williams wrote his piano quintet to compliment Schubert’s famous Trout Quintet, for the unusual combination of piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass.
The concert opens with Frank Bridge’s Phantasy Piano Quartet, described by pianist Anna Tilbrook as: “a great piece, the perfect concert opener, written just a few years after the Vaughan Williams and interesting to compare Bridge’s style with the extraordinarily variety of styles the latter employs”.
No one who enjoys Schubert’s refreshingly tuneful music should miss this concert, featuring a superb chamber group, comprising four eminent musicians, who will be joined by double bass player Peter Buckoke, whose instrument featured in the first performance of the Vaughan Williams Quintet.
