May 2016 - The Trio Soane gave a very enjoyable recital at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic on Thursday 19th May. Their programme skilfully blended Viennese classicism (Beethoven - Piano Trio no. 2) with works from the Czech repertoire, Dvořák's Mazurek and Josef Suk's Song of Love for violin and piano, and Martinů's Variations on a Theme of Rossini for cello and piano. Adéla Ševčíková (violin) and Corinna Boylan (cello) showed off their skills both as soloists and as ensemble members, and they were brilliantly accompanied by Marzia Hudajarova on the piano. Let us hope that their continuing studies at the Royal Academy of Music will bring them further awards and recognition.
The concert was sponsored by Mr Ivan Koenig, to whom The Friends are very grateful.
