The Fibonacci Sequence
Daniel Pioro, violin; Benjamin Hughes, cello; Kathron Sturrock, piano
Schulhoff Duo for Violin & Cello
Tchaikovsky Piano Trio in A minor, Op 50
Every performance by the ‘Fibs’ includes programming that offers new insights from the juxtapositions of specific chamber music repertoire. They are the fruits of Kathron Sturrock’s instinctive and inspired approach, often including less well known works of the great composers. This programme is typically bold and intriguing, built around Tchaikovsky’s huge Piano Trio, a work that the composer showed little enthusiasm to compose at first but subsequently delivered a major work of great substance. It always seems for the wrong reasons to need reviving, such is its rarity in the concert hall. Along with the Leonore Trio’s later Festival performances of Lalo and Dvořák’s piano trios, this performance is unmissable. Kathron is the founder and artistic director of the ‘Fibs’ and is rightly praised as one of this country’s finest chamber musicians.
