Britain’s most talented siblings come to the Sheldonian Theatre for a variously configured concert taking in the momentum and lyricism of Mendelssohn. Eventually, all three Kanneh-Masons unite for two staples of the piano trio literature. First they bring us the gentle giant among Beethoven’s piano trios: the G major work that offers a rare portrait of Beethoven at his most untroubled and serene. Next comes a trio spawned by Brahms at the peak of his powers, a work of Olympian prowess and virile heroism that ultimately channels the same joy animated by Beethoven. Don’t miss this remarkable trio of musicians who have been playing together since childhood.
