Beethoven Clarinet Trio in B-flat
Sir James MacMillan Fourteen Little Pictures
Dvořak Piano Trio in E minor ‘Dumky’

With a distinguished history stretching back more than five decades, the Nash Ensemble brings together some of the country’s most exceptional instrumental soloists across a broad repertoire of established classics and ground-breaking contemporary works.

Two glorious chamber classics inspired by popular tunes bookend its richly coloured recital. Beethoven conjured inventive variations on a pop song of his time in his bold, witty Clarinet Trio, while Dvořák’s celebrated ‘Dumky’ Trio takes its inspiration from eastern European folk tunes, in a captivating set of heartbreaking songs and uproarious dances in all but name. 

In between, the remarkable piano trio Fourteen Little Pictures by the International Festival’s featured composer Sir James MacMillan, which weaves compelling miniatures together in a work of astonishing power and searching profundity.
