Wigmore Study Group: Haydn Piano Trios
3-part study course
- Julian Philips
- Laura Roberts
- Students from Guildhall School of Music & Drama
Explore some of Haydn’s unjustly neglected masterpieces in three afternoons devoted to his piano trios.
Reflecting Haydn’s mature genius, these works are full of his finest keyboard writing, improvisatory in style, both playful and profound. Haydn’s piano trios were dedicated to several of the most talented female pianists of his day, demanding exceptional artistry and skill.
Composer Julian Philips investigates these wonderful works with pianist Laura Roberts, guest speakers and students from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
