Vienna Piano Trio; Mark Padmore tenor

Bennett, Schubert and Thomas Larcher


  • Vienna Piano Trio
  • Mark Padmore tenor

Compassion runs as a theme throughout this concert, present in Schubert’s visionary response to Goethe’s Gesänge des Harfners and in Richard Rodney Bennett’s Tom O’Bedlam’s Song, works of searing expressive power written for and dedicated to Peter Pears. Schubert’s Second Piano Trio offers a gentle summation of the composer’s compassionate engagement with life.
