    Brahms version of his first work dates from more than 30 years after its composition in 1854. Dissatisfied with his original effort he wrote to Schumanns widow Clara With what childish amusement I whiled away the beautiful summer days you will never guess. I have rewritten my B major Trio.... It will not be as wild as before - but will it be better?

    Brahms last work for the medium was composed in 1886 whilst on holiday in the Swiss resort of Hofstetten. Bridges competition-winning work established his chamber music credentials among the younger generation of British composers. Ravels only Piano Trio references dance rhythms of his Basque country homeland, poetic forms originating in Malaya, and a passacaglia in the manner of Bach.

    Completed some 28 years after his first, Brahms himself wrote to his publisher Simrock of his second work for the medium You have not so far had such a beautiful trio from me and very probably have not published one to match it in the last ten years. The programme is completed by the last of Mozarts six Piano Trios and Shostakovichs work, composed in 1944 and described by one writer as perhaps the greatest Piano Trio since Brahms.
