Today's three concerts explore a key strand in this year's Festival - the emergence of the national voice in music. This midday concert brings together three LDSM resident artists. Trios from masters of the chamber music repertoire frame the performance of Kodály's duo, which expresses the composer's impressions of the high Alps and his forebodings of the First World War, along with a companion piece commissioned from John Manduell. A compelling programme in one of our favourite venues.
Schubert String Trio Movement in B flat, D471 7'
Kodály Duo for violin and cello, Op.7 28'
John Manduell Recitative and Aria for violin and cello 7' world premiere
Beethoven String Trio in D major, Op.9 No.2 23'
