Beethoven ~ Trio in G, Op. 1 No. 2
Mendelssohn ~ Trio No. 2 in C minor, Op. 66

Lucy Gould, Violin
Richard Lester, Cello
Benjamin Frith, Piano

One of the finest Piano Trios performing worldwide today, the Gould bring a wonderful combination of pieces to Paxton. Beethoven wrote his Opus 1 set of trios in 1795, shortly after he moved to Vienna, and these engaging and genial works were enthusiastically received, earning the composer a healthy sum from sales of the music. Mendelssohn’s late 2nd Trio not only retains the freshness of his youth but also captures his fascination with the music of both Bach and Beethoven.

“…a musical fire that ignites from the first bar.” –Washington Post
