Lana Trotovsek violin; Simon Lane piano

Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Arvo Pärt and Frolov


  • Lana Trotovsek violin
  • Simon Lane piano

While Brahms and Arvo Pärt applied telling expressive economy to the works in this programme, extrovert display hallmarks the Frolov work, as it delves into themes from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

London-based, Slovenian-born violinist Lana Trotovsek also explores Tchaikovsky’s haunting reflections on ‘a dear place’, the country estate of the composer’s patroness, Nadezhda von Meck.
