Clytha: Musical Discovery Weekend

Mendelssohn: The Two Piano Trios.

2.00pm, Saturday 21st April – 4.30pm, Sunday 22nd April 2018

Spend a weekend immersed in chamber music in the magnificent setting of Clytha Park, Monmouthshire, and discover the inner workings of two of the most magnificent Romantic piano trios in the repertoire. Sessions will be led from the piano by Daniel Tong, alongside two of Britain’s leading string players; Catherine Manson, violin, and Robin Michael, cello.

Mendelssohn Piano Trio in D minor, op. 49

Mendelssohn Piano Trio in C minor, op. 66

Robert Schumann called Mendelssohn’s D minor ‘the master trio of the age’ and its effortless lyricism and heartfelt expression inspired a generation of trios from the Romantic masters who followed. The later C minor trio is a brooding, stormy work in Beethoven’s signature key, capped by an exultant finale inspired by Mendelssohn’s love of Bach. These two pieces arrive at an intriguing point in musical history, as Classicism gives way to Romanticism, and both show a master craftsman at work as well as a passionate storyteller.

The weekend will include study sessions, performances, discussion and Q&A as well as meals with the musicians and hosts.

Price includes all sessions, garden visit and dinner on Saturday, study sessions, lunch and final concert on Sunday.

Recommended local accommodation available on request.

Clytha Park, Clytha, Monmouthshire, NP7 9BW
