Anna Clyne - A Thousand Mornings (18')

Franz Schubert - Piano Trio No 2 in E flat, D929 (42')


The Fidelio Trio are enthusiastic champions of the piano trio genre, performing the widest possible range of repertoire on concert stages across the world. They are broadcast regularly on BBC Radio 3, RTÉ Lyric FM and featured on Sky Arts documentaries. They have an impressive list of commissions and first performances from the leading composers and a large discography of highly acclaimed recordings including Ravel and Saint-Saëns for Resonus Classics, Korngold and Schoenberg for Naxos; the complete Michael Nyman Piano Trios for MN Records and multiple releases on NMC, Delphian Records. Their recent release of French Piano Trios was a Gramophone Magazine Critic’s Choice


Since their debut at London’s Southbank Centre, they have appeared at Wigmore Hall and Kings Place, at festivals from Brighton and Cheltenham to St. Magnus, and from Gregynog to Huddersfield. They regularly perform across the Irish Sea at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, Kilkenny Festival and Belfast Festival at Queens. 


Schubert wrote two Piano Trios, both in the final years of his life when he became dissatisfied with his song writing and frustrated by his lack of success at opera. In the E flat trio, you can hear suggestions of Beethoven in the brusque rhythmic opening bars of the first movement and shadows of Winterreise in the famous slow movement. The kaleidoscopically colourful finale exists in two versions; the decision of which version to play lies with performers. 


Anna Clyne's A Thousand Mornings was written for the Fidelio Trio, inspired by a poem by Mary Oliver:

A Thousand Mornings
All night my heart makes its way

however it can over the rough ground

of uncertainties, but only until night

meets and then is overwhelmed by

morning, the light deepening, the

wind easing and just waiting, as I

too wait (and when have I ever been

disappointed?) for redbird to sing
Mary Oliver (1935-2019)



Covid-19 and concerts

In line with the most up-to-date guidance Public Health for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, we:

  • clean all surfaces that people touch regularly and keep hand sanitizer around the site
  • ensure air flow remains good around the building (we have a highly efficient air extraction system in the concert hall)  
  • advise all ticket holders to take a lateral flow test before coming to an event at the Granary and insist that staff and visitors who are unwell do not attend the venue

Face coverings are currently not compulsory, but if the guidance changes we will communicate this to ticket holders
