Science & Music
The Trio have curated several science and music programmes with TV presenter Dallas Campbell, most recently featuring pieces from ‘The Ascent of Man’ combined with music by Shostakovich and the Trio’s pianist/composer Jan Rautio. This was performed with actor Oliver Senton to a sold-out hall for Robin Ince’s show at Kings Place in December 2018.
Delve into Mozart’s world in 18th century Vienna. This concert features soprano Kirsty Hopkins (The Sixteen), performing arias from ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ and ‘Don Giovanni’ with chamber music from the Rautio Piano Trio. More than a concert, this is an immersive experience, exploring Mozart’s life both internal and external as he was on the cusp of his breakthrough as an opera composer.
In two Acts, Mozart’s Court, explores the connections between his opera and chamber music. Arias delve into the turbulent love experienced by Mozart’s operatic female characters, interspersed with movements for piano trio echoing the compositional style and temperament of the operas.
Premiered in 2018 at Hastings Early Music Festival.
Passion & Fire from Buenos Aires
Experience the music of Astor Piazzolla and Argentinian Tango as the Rautios join forces with dancers Bianca and Sacha from Rojo y Negro Tango. This special concert features Tango classics from the Golden Age through to Tango Nuevo and Piazzolla. Optional images by Sacha Leech compliment the performance. Premiered at Kino Teatr.
This programme features dramatic 20th century works by Bernstein, Copland & Shostakovich spanning two decades leading to the end of the Second World War. Despite the apparent contrast of American and Soviet musical styles, these three composers are linked by several historical, cultural and personal connections and all display influences of Jewish Eastern European musical tradition.
A champion of Shostakovich’s music in the West, Bernstein’s lively trio is an explosion of American post-depression optimism, whilst his mentor, Copland, draws us into a bleaker world with his striking trio based on a Jewish theme. Shostakovich’s youthful and exuberant first piano trio is programmed alongside the monumental second trio which plunges us back into the darkness of Stain’s USSR.
Performed at Kings Place, London.
