The Gould Trio

The Gould Trio

Lucy Gould (violin) Alice Neary (cello) Benjamin Frith (piano) Uwe Grodd (flute)

Beethoven, arr. Hummel – Symphony no 3 in E flat major, op 55, Eroica
Brahms – Piano Trio in B major, op 8

The Gould Piano Trio is joined by the German Flautist, Uwe Grodd for a performance of his edition of Beethoven’s towering ‘Eroica’ Symphony arranged for flute, violin, cello and piano by Mozart’s star student, Johann Nepomuk Hummel.

The young Brahms had the burden of living with Robert Schumann’s prediction that he would become a second Beethoven, and when he eventually revised his Piano Trio op 8 during his final decade, in 1889, the masterly craftsmanship it displayed reflected that early promise.

These two masterpieces should be an inspired pairing as Brahms declared to Clara that his revision was “not so sad as before- but better!”
