MUSIC BY SCHUBERT, SIBELIUS AND MOZART
The Joachim String Trio was formed in early 2016 to explore the rich store of repertoire for violin, viola and cello, primarily from the Classical and Romantic periods, but also embracing music from the Baroque and the twentieth century. The Trio performs with gut strings and historical bows. This lends the music an immediacy, expressivity and textural subtlety which has led the Trio to a uniquely explorative and stimulating approach to the music.
The number of fine works for the string trio is surprisingly large and deserves more exploration than it currently enjoys, a situation the Joachim String Trio has committed to remedy.
SCHUBERT: String Trio in B flat, D 581
SIBELIUS: Suite in A major for string trio
