The cellist Tanja Tetzlaff, her brother the violinist Christian Tetzlaff and their accomplice Lars Vogt at the piano, appeared at the TCE for a Sunday morning concert. The 3 musicians are great soloists but also accomplished chamber musicians.
Their programme started with Antonín Dvořák’s Piano Trio No. 3, a beautiful and lyrical work, performed very finely, and in my view inexplicably neglected in comparison of Trio No. 4 nicknamed Dumky.
2nd work, Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio No. 2, again brilliantly interpreted – I particularly enjoyed the central movements, the Andante con moto and the Scherzo: Presto.
The 3 offered an encore, a wonderful rendition of Brahms’ Andante grazioso from his Piano Trio No. 3.
