A POPULAR piano trio will return to Bromsgrove’s Artrix next Friday (October 24), performing both familiar and new works.

The Gould Piano Trio is made up of violinist Lucy Gould, cellist Alice Neary and pianist Benjamin Frith who were rising stars of the Young Classical Artists Trust 20 years ago.

They are now distinguished performers with an international reputation.

Among the pieces they will play will be one by Schubert written almost 200 years ago, a Dvorak trio and, to bring it up to date, a new work by James MacMillan, which was premiered by the Gould Trio at the Bath Festival earlier this year.

That, just 12 minutes long, is described by the composer as being packed with ideas including a fast rollicking ‘music hall idea’ and a lilting waltz.

The evening is being brought to the town by Bromsgrove Concerts, which was founded in 1963 to bring live chamber music from outstanding performers.

Tickets, at £17 (£3 concessions – registered disabled, unemployed or full time student over 25) are available by visiting or by calling 01527 577330.

Subscription and Rover tickets are available and young people under 25 are admitted free to all concerts thanks to the Cavatina Chamber Music Trust.
