The Argyle Trio is the most recent group formed by violinist Wilma Smith and introduces us to NZ cellist Mathias Balzat, who is currently studying in Düsseldorf and award-winning Australian pianist Laurence Matheson. Their programme celebrates three established masterpieces.
Due to Covid restrictions, the pianist is unable to travel from Australia. We are fortunate that Michael Houstoun has been able to step in as a replacement. The programme has also needed to be changed with Beethoven’s Archduke trio replacing Brahms.
Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano Trio in E flat Op.1 No.1
Maurice Ravel - Piano Trio in A minor, M.67
Ludwig van Beethoven – Piano Trio in B flat major Op 97 “Archduke”
