Celebrating its 40th birthday in 2017, the Gould Trio has scooped numerous accolades over the decades – including as British Rising Stars during the 1998-99 season, which propelled the group to international recognition.
The trio will demonstrate that considerable talent at The Stoller Hall when it tackles Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No 2 in E minor and Sally Beamish’s 1991-penned Piobaireachd. The group will also be joined by clarinettist Robert Plane – husband of Lucy Gould – for the North West premiere of Huw Watkins’ new work for piano trio and clarinet, Four Fables.
This well-rounded programme features Plane tackling Boulez’s piece Dialogue de l’ombre double, for clarinet and electronics – composed in 1984 to celebrate the 60th birthday of Luciano Berio.
With the Gould Trio and Plane having collaborated countlessly during their long careers, expect this to be an intimate and polished affair.
