RAUTIO PIANO TRIO
Jane Gordon – Victoria Simonsen – Jan Rautio
At the forefront of their generation, the Rautio Trio is one of Britain’s finest chamber groups. The Trio has received widespread acclaim for its intelligent and dynamic performances. Their innovative programming ranges from historically-informed interpretations of classical repertoire to cutting-edge contemporary works.
Rite, Sacrifice & War: Rautio Piano Trio play Stravinsky, Weill & Shostakovich in Kings Place on September 10th this year. Please see our diary page for all the details of this special concert where we will premiere the ‘Rite of Spring’ arranged for piano trio by our pianist Jan.
Our Mozart disc is nearly ready and we have just finished working on the final edit with our wonderful producer, Adrian Peacock. More details coming very soon.
We are looking forward to being back in the studio again soon to record Mendelssohn.
Beethoven Trio in B flat Op. 11 ‘Gassenhauer’
“Beethoven’s Trio in Bb Op.11 Gassenhauer had thrilling new life and spirit breathed into it by the Rautio Piano Trio’s playing. The pianist led the others with the glorious ease and liquid freedom of his playing. Beethoven’s themes were tossed playfully round the trio in the outer movements while the Adagio had real seductive warmth to it” SOUND FestivalIncludes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
