Soprano and piano trio

The combination of soprano and piano trio is perhaps not an obvious one for a concert programme but the soprano Gillian Keith joins a piano trio made up of Russian and Lativan musicians, Yuri Zhislin (violin), Sergei Podobedov (piano), Kristina Blaumane (cello) at Kings Place on Sunday 29 January 2017, for a programme of predominantly Russian music with works by Rachmaninov, Borodin, Taneyev and Tchaikovsky. There will be trios by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, some of Borodin's Songs and Romances for soprano, cello and piano, the Canzone for soprano and piano trio by Sergei Taneyev (who studied composition with Tchaikovsky and piano with Nikolai Rubenstein at the Moscow Conservatoire).

Gillian Keith has written an interesting posting on her blog about learning songs in Russian, a language which she does not speak.

Full information from the Kings Place website.
