Youthful works by Britten and Korngold
Thalea Quartet, Isabel Charisius viola
Mozart Piano Trio in C major K. 548 20’
Britten Phantasy in F minor 16’
Korngold Piano Trio 30’
Two contrasting piano trios frame a fascinating Britten rarity. The teenage Britten’s richly-hued melodious fantasy provides tantalising glimpses of both his formative influences at the Royal College of Music and the music yet to come. Mozart’s sparkling piano trios are miracles of clarity and concision. Korngold, a prodigy hailed as ‘a new Mozart’ was to become the most celebrated Hollywood film composer of his day. The lavish piano trio – his opus 1 – has an appropriately cinematic sweep and quicksilver charm.
