BACH Sonata in E flat BWV1031 for oboe and continuo

POULENC Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano
SZYMANOWSKI Nocturne and Tarantella for violin and piano
CHOPIN Piano Trio in G minor Op.8 

Ensemble 360 play a sequence of pieces that touch on the family background and musical experiences of one of the UK’s favourite novelists, Marina Lewycka. During the concert, ensemble members will discuss with Marina the importance of her Ukrainian heritage and exchange thoughts on the nature of performing and listening to chamber music.

Ranging across three centuries, the music in tonight’s programme moves from the elegance of Bach to the liveliness of Poulenc’s Trio, and the Romantic yearning of Chopin’s early Piano Trio. Prokofiev’s Five Mélodies began as wordless songs for the Ukrainian soprano Nina Koshetz, but Prokofiev quickly made a virtuoso arrangement of them for the Polish violinist Paul Kochanski.
