A special concert was held at 7.30pm on Saturday May 21st in St. Mary’s Church, Baldock to raise funds for The RevIvel Association.
Schubert’s Piano Quintet nicknamed the ‘Trout’, with its unusual instrumentation of piano, violin, viola, cello and bass was performed. This was a particularly apt choice of music for a concert in aid of RevIvel! It is extraordinary that it was written when Schubert was only aged 22. It holds a special place in the repertoire for its sublime intensity and astonishing beauty and is named by many music-lovers and professionals as a favourite piece of chamber music. Mendelssohn’s rich and exciting Trio in C minor, Bottesini Elegy in D (bass) and Kreisler’s Schön Rosmarin (violin) completed the programme. The musicians are all experienced professionals, who have given many concerts together and feature in www.cwilmers.co.uk and www.jillmorton.com.
