2013 at Malone House

Wednesday 27 February 7.30pm - John Leeming joined Orion Duo for an evening of piano trios. We played the best-known of Beethoven's early trios, op1 no3 in C minor, and the passionate Romantic trio by the Czech composer Smetana. We also added an unusual piece, Orpheus by Liszt, arranged for trio by Saint Saens

 

Wednesday 27 March 7.30pm - Orion Duo played a Mozart violin sonata, Brahms op120 no1 sonata for viola and piano, and Benjamin Britten's "Lachrymae" for viola and piano. This uses a theme from the music of the earlier British composer John Dowland, and celebrated the 100th anniversary of Britten's birth. Chris played a piano sonata by Beethoven, the "Pathetique" sonata in C minor.
