London Bridge Trio

Living often under the shadow of her famous brother, many people might be unaware of Fanny Mendelssohns skills as a composer and pianist. Her trio in D minor was composed in 1846-7, shortly before her death, and was one of the few works her family took to be published posthumously surprising in a way, given that they had all but forbidden her to compose during her lifetime!

Beethoven Trio in C minor Op. 1/3

The London Bridge Trio is one of Britains leading chamber ensembles. The trio originally formed in 2002 as the London Bridge Ensemble and they continue to prioritise strong, composer-led programmes with the option to collaborate with regular guest artists. Their name reflects an admiration for English music of the early twentieth century, which forms part of the groups varied repertoire and is represented by their hugely successful Frank Bridge recordings. Recently the trio has appeared frequently in London with Wigmore Hall and Kings Place concerts as well as a residency at St Johns Smith Square, entitled Brahms and his World, which represented four aspects of his composing life with mixed combinations and song.
