St Johns Taunton – Lunchtime Concert: Russian Romance

September 10 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

Trio Exe invite you on a musical journey back to Russia in the 1890s. A period when Russian music was full of romantic melodies and gorgeous harmonies, with native composers respected and revered across Europe and a thriving cultural scene.
The main work in our programme is the Piano Trio No. 1 by Anton Arensky. Possibly not a name you have come across, and we are delighted to bring you this sumptuous music if it is your first introduction to the composer. Arensky specialised in composing chamber music and was devoted to the music of Tchaikovsky, even using some of Tchaikovsky’s melodies in his own works. This Trio is a whirlwind of contrasting moods, from the dramatic to the cheerful, both memorable and uplifting and guaranteed to brighten your day!
They will also play some arrangements of pieces from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker.
