Trios @ 3
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Hans Gal - E major, Op. 18 and Felix Mendelssohn - D minor, Op. 49. Both Gal and Mendelssohn have strong links to Edinburgh. Gal lived in Britain after fleeing Austria during WW2 and taught at Edinburgh University until his retirement in 1960. Mendelssohn first visited Britain in 1829 and trips to Scotland inspired two of his most popular works - The Hebrides Overture and the Scottish Symphony. These two romantic piano trios celebrate their significant contribution to chamber music repertoire.
