Ronald Brautigam, Esther Hoppe & Christian Poltéra
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Following the dazzling insights of his widely admired 2018 International Festival recital, Dutch period keyboard player Ronald Brautigam makes a welcome return in the company of two esteemed friends and colleagues: exceptional Swiss violinist Esther Hoppe and her compatriot, cellist Christian Poltra.

Together, Hoppe, Poltra and Brautigam bring a similar clarity, freshness and bold authenticity to three Romantic classics of the chamber repertoire.

Schuberts E flat Trio, D929, is one of the greatest works in the chamber repertoire, a monumental masterpiece of symphonic dimensions and emotional richness. The exuberant Piano Trio by Fanny Mendelssohn is yearning and restless yet often unfairly overlooked. In between, the three players explore the delicacy and touching simplicity of Schumanns delightful Fantasiestcke.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
