From Tragedy to Joy - London Philharmonic Orchestra

Soloists from the London Philharmonic Orchestra perform Brahms's Horn Trio and Schubert's Trout Quintet.

22 April 2017 | Book tickets

If symphonies are like big-screen blockbusters, chamber music is like a composer’s personal diary: thoughts and feelings that are too special to share with just anyone. Emotions run deep and strong in Brahms's haunting Horn Trio, written as he mourned the death of his mother.

But in Schubert’s hugely popular Trout Quintet, they bubble over with joy. Schubert wrote this piece for friends on holiday, and you can tell – its glittering, easy-going sunshine is the perfect complement to Brahms’s twilit poetry. With beautiful melodies in abundance, its easy to see why this is one of the world’s favourite piece of chamber music.

Join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for a special chamber concert, From tragedy to joy, on Saturday 22 April at Wigmore Hall.

Please see the website for full details.
