Haydn’s delectable A major trio fizzes with playfulness, sparkling wit, elegance and melodic invention. His creative genius had been matured and enriched by time spent in London, rather than his earlier cloistered world of Eszterháza.

Getting the instrumental balance right is tricky for piano trios, but Rob Keeley says “the challenge of making the intimate and above all immediate medium of the piano trio ‘glow’ as it were, is for me the raison d’être of composing”. He hopes “the spirit of Haydn might be detected hovering benignly” in this trio, written specifically for the Aquinas, who give us this premiere.

Formed in 2009, the Aquinas Trio is already one of the UK’s most impressive ensembles, with an outstanding array of awards and achievements. All three players are solo artists in their own right.

“The Aquinas Trio rejoiced in these cherishable scores with a symphonic sweep and an insatiable forward momentum” (The Strad)
