Music in the Round launch a feast of wonderful Russian music with an unashamedly romantic programme.

Glazunov’s music owes something to numerous traditions: Balakirev’s nationalism, Borodin’s epic grandeur, Rimsky-Korsakov’s virtuosity and the lyrical mastery of Tchaikovsky.

Tchaikovsky’s monumental and magisterial Piano Trio was conceived on a scale not far-removed from his Symphonies; it is the work of a composer at the very peak of his creative powers.
