Franz Bartolomey and Friends
Chamber music | Classic | Concert | Adults
A chance to hear three of the most famous works for flute trio in a single evening. These works were written by different composers, each of them deemed a piano marvel of their time. Hummel’s “Schöne Minka” variations (based on a popular Russian folk song) are amongst his best-known works. Weber wrote his trio for a doctor friend, “Dr Philipp Jungh zu Prag”, who was himself an outstanding cellist and chamber musician. At the premiere performance of his much-loved D Minor Piano trio in Leipzig in 1840, Mendelssohn took the piano part himself. The flute often replaces the violin part in this work — indeed, this variation was authorised by the composer himself, and it is considered one of the finest in the chamber music repertoire of lyrical, romantic pieces.
