Latest Release - New Film for the London Bach Society

We are proud to announce the release of our beautifully filmed concert for the London Bach Society.

Our performance took place behind closed doors at Kings Place and features beautiful music by JS Bach and his sons JC Bach and CPE Bach. We finish the programme with the finale from Mendelssohn’s C min piano trio, preceded by a Bach chorale.

We filmed the concert with the aim that we are sharing a performance you’d get from a CD but with stunning visuals. The camera works gets up close and personal and is a very different atmosphere from a concert hall.

Out now and available to stream on Vimeo here. Trailer below.

 

Update - Fundraising for our Beethoven Cycle

In April 2020 the Rautio Piano Trio had planned to begin recording the complete cycle of Beethoven piano trios, coinciding with the composer’s 250th anniversary. We are rescheduling the first recording and will announce more details soon with new dates. 

More about the Beethoven Project:

We will recreate the sound world of the period by recording on historical instruments. Four volumes will be released over the next four years on the Resonus Classics label.

We are currently fundraising for the first part. Please read all about our Beethoven Project through our GoFundMe page or get in touch directly with us if you would like to get involved: rautiopianotrio@gmail.com
