Marsyas Trio

Part of the Conway Hall Sunday Concerts, Spring 2022 Series

Add to my Calendar 10-04-2022 18:30 10-04-2022 20:30 36 Marsyas Trio We are pleased to be able to welcome an audience for this performance, and will also stream the concert on YouTube Live. Attendance in person may not be possible if government guidelines change prior to the event. We reserve the right to make this event livestream only and will inform ticket holders in advance. From Master to Pupil The Marsyas Trio‘s programme explores the passing of traditions between three generations of composers linked through their musical lineage as pupils and teachers. Hummel taught both Farrenc and Czerny; Czerny in turn became a teacher of Mendelssohn. Each composer represents a different branch within this musical ‘family tree’. Louise Farrenc, notably, occupies a special place in music history in being one of the few recognised women composers of her generation. Mendelssohn’s Op. 49 is presented here in the lesser-known re-orchestration for flute, which was made by the composer himself at the request of his English publisher. Pre-concert talk with the Marsyas Trio at 5.30pm: The pre-concert talk will explore the passing of tradition between Hummel, Farrenc, Czerny and Mendelssohn, linked in a musical lineage as pupils and teachers. This lineage also outlines the development of the flute-cello-piano trio as a genre in its own right, with roots in the Classical era. The talk will look at how this instrumental combination stands apart from the piano trio (with violin), with its own repertoire which is currently enjoying a revival. About the Sunday Concerts Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series is the longest-running of its kind in Europe. Conway Hall was purpose-built in 1929 to host concerts and lectures, and they have continued here until the present day. The ethos of “affordable classical music for all” still remains.
