The piano trio repertoire owes some impressive recent additions to the musicians of Trio con Brio Copenhagen, who regularly commission new works. At the Pierre Boulez Saal, they now perform the world premiere of a composition by Danish composer Bent Sørensen, the ensemble’s close collaborator formany years.
This premiere is bookended by piano trios by Beethoven and Shostakovich, both found on recent awardwinning recordings by the ensemble.
