Genre: Chamber music

Monday at last with trio

Music by among others Ethel Smyth and Erkki Melartin.

Cecilia Zilliacus and Kati Raitinen perform together with violist Lilli Maijala. Finnish Maijala is a multi-award-winning soloist and chamber musician with international reach, based in Amsterdam.

We hear duets by Beethoven and by Norwegian Bjarne Brustad, as well as a piece for solo viola by Finnish Cecilia Damström. But the programme centres on two string trios, and the one by Ethel Smyth from 1884 is particularly voluminous. The music was composed during her studies in Leipzig in the 1880s and is filled with vitality. 

Erkki Melartin is undeservedly overshadowed by his contemporary countryman Sibelius, but in this artful and often dark string trio from the mid-1920s, he shows that his music can stand on its own. And there is much to discover in Melartin’s oeuvre, including six symphonies.
