London Fortepiano Trio

The London Fortepiano Trio was formed in 1978. As leading performers in their field, it is their aim to present the piano trios of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and their contemporaries as they were heard by their first audiences. There is perhaps no form of chamber music that benefits more from the 'historical' approach than the piano trio. The aesthetic intentions of the composers in both style and structure, scale and sonority, are indivisibly linked to the instrumentation; the crucial balance between strings and keyboard is here transformed by the use of an eighteenth-century fortepiano and stringed instruments in classical condition. The London Fortepiano Trio has given many concerts throughout Europe which have included appearances at the English Bach Festival, in Paris, Brussels, and Florence, and it broadcasts regularly for the BBC and Belgian radio. In 1982 the Trio celebrated Haydn's 250th anniversary with a series of twelve concerts at the Purcell Room in London which received wide critical acclaim. The Times described the series as 'one of the most valuable features of the season.'
