Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano Trio in E flat, op 70 no 2 

Robert Schumann - Piano Trio no 3 in G minor, op 110


This newly formed Piano Trio of outstanding young musicians bring a programme of two classical works to the Granary. Beethoven’s E flat Trio is an instantly lovable piece, its warm, intimate opening soon breaking into the lively dancelike material that characterises the work. Schumann’s G minor Piano Trio is the last Piano Trio he wrote. From its sweeping, dark opening, the exquisite ‘operatic’ string duet in the slow movement through to the carnival spirit of the finale, it is no wonder that the piece made quite an impression on Clara Schumann who commented that ‘it is unique, full of passion, through and through…'. 


In 2021pianist Ariel Lanyi won 3rd Prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, he was a prize-winner in the YCAT (London) and Concert Artists Guild (New York) International Auditions. In the same year, he made his debut at Wigmore Hall and released his recording of music by Schubert for Linn Records. As a concerto soloist, Ariel has performed Brahms Concerto No.2 with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Beethoven’s Concerto No.2 at the Royal Academy of Music. He has performed widely in Europe including recitals at the deSingel Arts Centre in Antwerp and Salle Cortot in Paris.


Charlie Lovell-Jones has been recognised as one of the most promising young violinists to emerge internationally. Since his sold-out Royal Festival Hall debut aged 15, Charlie has appeared as soloist with orchestras including the English Chamber and Sendai Philharmonic orchestras, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the RTE Concert Orchestra. His live recordings of The Lark Ascending and Karl Jenkins’ Violin Concerto with BBC NOW have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and Radio Wales. As a J&A Beare Violin Society Artist, Charlie plays a 1777 G.B. Guadagnini violin, generously loaned by a private benefactor.


Bulgarian cellist Yoanna Prodanova, currently based in London, performs internationally and enjoys a busy schedule as a solo cellist and a chamber musician. A recipient of the Sylva Gelber Award and the Making Music Award for Young Concert Artists, her recent concerto performances include Dvorak with the South East London Orchestra, Haydn C major with the RAM Chamber Orchestra and Elgar with the Amati Orchestra. Yoanna’s debut solo recording, which includes works by Janacek, Fauré and Chopin for Linn Records came out in 2020. Yoanna plays on Giuseppe Gagliano cello generously provided by the Canimex Group, Canada.
