L van Beethoven Op. 70 No.1 Ghost Trio
J Casken Lust of Roots (world premiere)
A Dvořák Trio in E minor Dumky

The Gould Piano Trio have been compared in the Washington Post to the great Beaux Arts Trio for their ‘musical fire’ and ‘dedication to the genre’ and have remained at the forefront of the international chamber music scene for a quarter of a century.

Their programme opens with Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ Trio, so named because of its eerie slow movement. Beethoven was said to have been contemplating an opera on the subject of Macbeth at the time. John Casken’s Lust of roots receives its world premiere in Buxton and the programme ends with Dvořàk’s Dumky Trio, whose six short movements are simple in form but pack an emotional punch.
