Erato Piano Trio: Granados Chamber Music
Catalan composer Enric Granados developed an important performance career not only as a soloist, but as a chamber musician, working with Pau Casals and Jacques Thibaud, to whom he dedicated his Sonata for Violin and Piano in A Major. Only the first movement was performed in Granados' lifetime, and this was rediscovered and published in the 1970s. Manuscripts of a second, incomplete fourth, and a very likely third movement have now been recently rescued, affording the much-awaited opportunity to hear this great piece in full, and to contemplate Granados amidst a shift in the late development of his compositional style away from that of his familiar Goyescas.
First-prize winners at the Anglo-Czech Trust Competition and recently selected as featured artists by Making Music’s Concert Promoters’ Network, the Concordia Foundation Young Artists Scheme and the Kings Place Chamber Studio scheme, the Erato Piano trio is rapidly establishing a reputation as one of the UK’s leading young ensembles praised for their virtuosity, outstanding musicianship and stylistic versatility.

Enric Granados (1867-1916) is one of the greatest composers, well known for his zarzuelas, his piano works like ‘12 Danzas españolas’ and the opera ‘Goyescas’, inspired by paintings and tapestries by Goya, and most probably his masterpiece.
Admired on both sides of the Atlantic, he and his wife died tragically in waters of the English Channel when the ship they were travelling in from New York was torpedoed by a German submarine. His death was a stunning loss for the international music elite. 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the Catalan composer, has already seen numerous events organised in London in homage to the anniversary.
This event is one of the flagship Granados centenary concerts and other events taking place across the UK this Autumn.
