Piano Trio in B flat major
Magnus and Guy Johnston are joined by former Scottish International Piano Competition winner Tom Poster in two concerts of transcendent music. This Schubert programme climaxes with his B flat Trio, one of the greatest of all chamber works, along with the charming and lyrical Arpeggione sonata and the haunting Trio Notturno.
This is first of two Schubert Piano Trio concerts. The second one is on Sunday 16 September at 3pm, also in Dirleton Kirk.
'...visceral, no-holds-barred brio...'
BBC Music Magazine
'Let the work which he bequeathed to us be a precious legacy. Time, though producing much that is beautiful, will not soon produce another Schubert.'

Dirleton is one of the most picturesque of East Lothian's many beautiful villages, and its church, Dirleton Kirk, dedicated to St Andrew, is a real gem.
Built in 1612 to replace the parish church along the coast at Gullane which was continually being inundated by sand, this long, low-eaved church with its square, gothic-topped tower is built of warm pink sandstone.
Its striking Archerfield Aisle (1664) is Scotland's earliest example of neo-classical architecture. Inside, the mellow light filters through some especially fine stained glass.
