The Linos Piano Trio thoroughly enjoyed their first visit to Trinity Laban Conservatoire in November as Ensemble-in-Residence. They return on Friday 23rd March to give another enticing lunchtime recital in the chapel, featuring two arrangements of orchestral works. They will then work collectively with students to explore both the rewards as well as the challenges of transcribing orchestral works for piano trio. As part of this post concert workshop, the Linos Piano Trio will share examples of their approach to re-imagining orchestral colours in Debussy, Ravel, and Dukas. The day will end with a series of masterclasses.

“Back in November, we had the privilege of visiting Trinity Laban as newly appointed Artists-in-Residence. The residency was centred on “the Origins of the Piano Trio”, featuring a concert of Enlightenment-era works by C.P.E. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven, which was rather inspiring to play in the fitting setting of Christopher Wren’s magnificent Old Naval Chapel overlooking the river Thames!
We are looking forward to returning on 23rd March this year, in a quite differently themed residency, centred around Debussy’s Centenary. Somewhat at the opposite end to the origins of the Piano Trio, we are performing the great Ravel Trio with 21st-century arrangements of Debussy’s Prélude à l’Aprés-midi d’un Faune (by us!) and La Mer (by Sally Beamish) … the Old Naval College seems fitting here too in a different way! This will be followed by a short lecture-workshop on our transcriptions for the trio, and Masterclasses with student ensembles. Do come and join us!”
