Stephen Dodgson  Piano Trio No 2 ‘Canonic Episodes’ (1973)
Brahms  Trio No 1 in B Op 8

Praised for their ‘exquisite phrasing’, ‘full-blooded commitment’ and ‘bold, passionate colours’, the Mithras Trio is fast growing a reputation as one of the next generation’s most exciting piano trios. They are current members of the BBC New Generation Artists scheme, broadcasting regularly on BBC Radio 3, and they won first prize at the prestigious 10th Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition.

This concert’s first piece is a contemporary one-movement work by Stephen Dodgson, rich and complex, by turns playful, exuberant and rhapsodic. The second is one of the great masterpieces of the piano trio repertoire, lyrical and soaring in the first movement, impish and skittish in the scherzo, celestially calm in the adagio, and finishing with a dark and brooding fourth movement.
