The Minerva Piano Trio (Michal Cwizewicz, Richard Birchall, Annie Yim) made its London debut at the South Bank Centre's Purcell Room in 2014 as Park Lane Group Young Artists, and the group is making a name for itself as interesting new trio with an ear for unusual repertoire whether it be contemporary (including music by the group's cellist Richard Birchall) or earlier. 

On Easter Monday (28 March 2016) at St Mary's Church, Perivale (Perivale Lane, Perivale, Middlesex, UB6 8SS), the trio will be performing music by Clara Schumann, Roxanna Panufnik and Brahms. Clara Schumann's Piano trio in G minor Op 17 was written in 1846 is is regarded as her masterpiece and the concert will be contrasting it with the original version of Brahms' Piano Trio in B major Op 8 which was written in 1854, the year after Brahms was introduced to the Schumanns for the first time. Completing the programme is ‘Around three corners' by Roxanna Panufnik written in 1995 and originally commissioned by Barnes Music Society.
