Chichester Music Society: The Rosamunde Trio

Read a review.

The world-renowned Rosamunde Trio, Martino Tirimo (piano) – Ben Sayevich (violin) – Daniel Veis (cello), make a rare appearance in Chichester, playing two masterpieces for the piano trio by Schubert & Tchaikovsky.

The three international soloists who formed the Rosamunde Trio have been performing together since 2002, but this only tells half the story.

Martino Tirimo first met Daniel Veis in Karlovy Vary back in 1978 when both were soloists at a concert in which Martino performed Beethoven’s Concerto No.4 and Daniel the ‘Rococo’ Variations of Tchaikovsky. By the time the second concert took place, at the Smetana Hall in Prague, the seeds of a long and fruitful friendship were well sown. Since then the two have undertaken many tours, exploring the piano and cello repertoire, and have recorded together Mendelssohn’s complete works for Supraphon.

Over this period the Rosamunde has covered a large part of the Piano Trio repertoire including all the Trios of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Shostakovich (for a complete list see under Repertoire). Two works have been written especially for them and more new compositions are on the way.

The Rosamunde Trio has toured extensively in the UK on 25 occasions and has also performed in festivals and major venues in the USA, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Cyprus and the Czech Republic. The Trio’s recordings include the Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich Trios, as well as Dvorak’s Trios, all recorded in Prague at the Liechtenstein Palace. In 2012 and 2013 the Rosamunde celebrated its 10th anniversary with cycles of the complete Piano Trios of Beethoven. Following the enormous success of these concerts, the London Chamber Music Society invited the Trio to do an even bigger series at London’s Kings Place devoted to all the Mozart Trios and the great works of the ‘French School’, a project which continued well into 2017. Other concerts included a week at the Orpheus and Bacchus Festival in France.

Glowing tributes have been paid to the ensemble including “consummate performances…stunning” (Classical Source).

A rare opportunity to hear them in Chichester!
