Coffee Concert V - Beethoven Piano Trios III at Lammermuir Festival

Taking their name from Van Baerle Straat, the address of Amsterdam’s famous Concertgebouw, this Dutch piano trio has emerged in recent years as one of the world’s finest. Acclaimed for the virtuosity and unanimity of their playing their residency at this year’s Lammermuir Festival brings a complete cycle of Beethoven’s piano trios to our popular morning Coffee Concerts – great music superbly performed.

In these two works, Beethoven finally completes his transformation of the piano trio, giving each instrument its own independent identity. The D major Trio is volatile and full of tension, while the E flat is altogether warmer and more benign.

'Festivals like this, outside of suburbia, have a very special place in music-lovers hearts, and act as beacons of pride for their communities. To be able to hear world class musicians in such beautiful settings as East Lothian provides is a wonderful thing.'

Steven Osborne, Patron, Lammermuir Festival

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
