Benjamin Kopp (Piano), Emma Jardine (Violin) and Martin Smith (Cello) of Streeton Trio will perform a magical concert of works by Haydn, Sergei Rachmaninov and Elena Kats-Chernin at The Q.

EACH of these works features a mythical concept or other-worldly character, from Haydn's bubbly rustic Gypsy trio, to Sergei Rachmaninov's deeply expressive Elegiaque Trio No. 1, to the floating, pretty Butterflying by Elena Kats-Chernin and ending with the masterful and colourful Ghost trio by Beethoven. Let the Streeton Trio's imaginative interpretation of these works transport you to a magical place, far, far away...
