Opening this concert featuring different combinations of violin, cello, and piano is Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata. It was originally written for the arpeggione, an enlarged guitar-like six stringed instrument developed in Vienna around 1823. It was bowed and played vertically like the cello. The instrument itself was short lived but the beautifully lyrical sonata itself survives, most commonly heard in transcriptions for viola or, as in this concert, the cello.

“In this programme, two of the country’s most distinguished string players will join me to perform a Schubert duo each, followed by two trios. The first trio was composed by another great melodist, Felix Mendelssohn. I’ve always loved the drama of the outer two movements, the heart-breaking  enderness of the Andante, and the playful scherzo reminiscent of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The programme will end, unusually, with a gentle nocturne by our hero, Schubert. It is the kind of sublime music which is, in my opinion, impossible to follow.” Sam Haywood - Artistic Director.
