A Musical Getaway at the Grand Hotel Eastbourne

Programme Wednesday 20 October

Mozart / Wilby Trio in G major K.562e
Beethoven Trio in C minor Op.9 No.3
Dohnanyi Serenade for String Trio

Programme Thursday 21 October

Devienne Bassoon Quartet in G minor No.3, Op.73
Klein String Trio
Beethoven Septet in E flat major, Op.20

Music by Mozart and Beethoven feature alongside some more unusual choices which chamber music enthusiasts will love. In
Wednesday’s concert you’ll hear Mozart’s Trio in G, Philip Wilby’s completion of a fragment of material left by Mozart. There’s also Beethoven’s dark and dramatic Trio in C minor, which perhaps served as inspiration for Dohnányi’s Serenade, written just over a century later and one of the great string trio masterpieces.

Thursday’s concert includes a beautiful and evocative trio composed by Gideon Klein while in Terezín concentration camp, as well as Beethoven’s Septet, which was apparently modelled on Mozart’s D Major Divertimento, and certainly it retains the light-hearted mood of Mozart’s work. The opening piece is Devienne’s Quartet for bassoon, violin, viola and cello which may be new to many, but it is a stunningly beautiful work that demands virtuosity from all the players – something LMP musicians have in abundance!

Regular attendees will be delighted that LMP principal cellist Sebastian Comberti will present a diverting illustrated talk on
Thursday morning – ‘Joining the Dots’ – about the challenges of completing composers’ unfinished works.

Enjoy this wonderful musical getaway along with the Grand Hotel’s first-class accommodation, exceptional dining and great company.

Booking is now open to all by ringing the Grand Hotel direct on 01323 412345.
