Trio Asana

Our first concert of 2016 sees the return of Broadstone Music Series regular, pianist Helen Nicholas, performing with musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Trio Asana on 23rd January 2016.

Trio Asana open their concert with the Kakadu (cockatoo) Variations by Beethoven. This is an amusing set of variations based on a popular song from the early 1800s.

Next on the programme is Debussy’s Piano Trio which is an early work in a light and lyrical style. The 18 year old Debussy was travelling with a family as resident teacher/pianist. He wrote this piece for his young charges and their talented friends.

The Dumky Trio by Dvorak is the most well known piece on the programme. The Dumkas are alternately slow and fast music which is easily accessible but not without deep running emotion throughout. It has been one of his most popular works since its first performance.
