Fenella Humphreys violin | Jessica Burroughs cello | Martin Roscoe piano
Haydn Piano Trio No.40 in F sharp minor Hob.XV:26
Mendelssohn Piano Trio No.2 in C minor Op.66
Martin Roscoe needs little introduction to Manchester audiences, who also know of him as the Artistic Director of the Manchester Chamber Concerts Society. The Mid-days invite Martin in the spirit of friendship and harmony! Fenella and Jessica are also both exceptional musicians, and they will bring finesse and great skill to this trio repertoire. Mendelssohn always makes you feel happy even when he’s writing in a minor key – the lightness and brilliance of this music will make you leave the concert hall on a high. Haydn’s Trio – in the very serious key of F-sharp minor – is nevertheless full of the composer’s usual humour and surprise.
