Award-winning, Vienna-based musicians the Eggner Trio appear as soloists in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, which is for piano, violin, cello and orchestra.

 The Eggner brothers – Georg, Florian and Christoph – are intimately acquainted with Beethoven’s one-of-a-kind concerto, having performed it to acclaim with many orchestras. Their high-level chamber music skills guarantee a night of incisive and exceptional music-making.

The life of Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara overlapped with that of his great compatriot and supporter, Jean Sibelius. Drawing upon influences as diverse as age-old liturgical music, folk traditions, minimalism and modernism, Rautavaara crafts musical edifices that inspire awe and wonder. Experience Rautavaara’s music at its most ravishing in the Symphony No 7,Angel of Light.
