The Rautio Trio launch their second album of Beethoven Trios on Resonus Classics, part of their wider project to record the complete cycle on fortepiano. The Trio will perform music from their new album alongside Haydn’s well-loved Gipsy Rondo trio. This special concert will also feature an ‘artists in conversation’ event where the musicians talk about their approach to playing on historical instruments and invite questions from the audience. The programme will explore the wit, charm and inventiveness of ’theme and variations’ shown in each work and the development of Beethoven’s writing for the genre.

Programme: ‘Exploring Theme & Variations’

Beethoven Op.44 Trio Theme & Variations, Haydn Gipsy Rondo Trio in G Hob XV:25, Beethoven Op.11 Trio in Bflat ‘Gassenhauer’

Rautio Piano Trio: Jane Gordon (violin), Victoria Simonsen (cello), Jan Rautio (fortepiano)

Since releasing their debut album of Mozart Trios in 2016, the Rautio Trio has emerged as one of today’s finest chamber ensembles known for their refined and powerfully expressive performances. With a passion for performing 18th and 19th century repertoire on both modern and period instruments, they have developed a fresh and engaging approach to their interpretations of historical masterworks.

The Trio has released three critically acclaimed albums with Resonus Classics and are frequently heard on BBC Radio 3. They have performed at the Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, South Bank, Bridgewater Hall, throughout the UK and in France, Austria and Germany.

In 2022 the Rautio Trio launched the first volume of the complete cycle of Beethoven Piano Trios, recorded on fortepiano, receiving 5 stars in the BBC Music Magazine and glowing reviews in Gramophone and Early Music Review.
