Postponed – Lunchtime Concert: Beethoven Piano Trio

  • This event has passed.
Beethoven Piano Trio_Marg

In 1795, a twenty-five-year-old Beethoven decided to publish his very first opus, a set of three piano trios, Op. 1, dedicated to Prince Carl von Lichnowsky.

Michael, Margarita and Lissa will perform the second trio – Piano Trio No. 2 in G major, Op. 1, No. 2

Their second piece to be performed at this lunchtime recital is Three Irish Pieces by Alec Rowley.

Rowley was born in London on 13 March 1892. He entered the Royal Academy of Music in 1908, where he studied under Frederick Corder, H.W. Richards and Edward Morton. He won several prizes, including the Mortimer and Prescott prizes for composition. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal College of Organists (FRCO) in 1914, and held a succession of church organist appointments: at St John’s, Richmond, 1912–21, St Alban’s, Teddington 1921–32 and, during the Second World War, at St Margaret’s, Westminster. From 1920 he was a lecturer at Trinity College of Music, later a professor and Fellow of the college. He became well known as a broadcaster during the 1930s, through a series of piano duets with Edgar Moy. From 1939 to 1947 he served as a member of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s management committee. He became a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music (FRAM) in 1934.
