Interval
FRANZ SCHUBERT (1797-1828)
Piano Trio No. 2 in E-flat major D. 929

Appearing together as a trio for the first time are: violinist Roberto González-Monjas, who has frequently played as concertmaster of the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra; cellist Clemens Hagen, celebrated both as a member of the Hagen Quartet and as a soloist, and pianist Kit Armstrong, who – as his Festival recital on 31st July will demonstrate – is a musician of unusual range. They perform two of the best-loved works of the piano trio repertoire: Beethoven’s Trio No 5 in D major, the ‘Ghost’, with its eerie slow movement, and Schubert’s expansive Trio No 2 in D flat major.
