Zukerman Trio - Special Event

Pinchas Zukerman - Violin
Amanda Forsyth - Cello
Angela Cheng - Piano

Chopin - Cello Sonata
Beethoven - Violin Sonata No 1
Arensky - Piano Trio No 1

When they’re not in front of an orchestra, Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth love playing chamber music. Come and hear the more intimate side of this remarkable musical partnership, as the married couple is joined by their good friend Angela Cheng (piano) in an evening of good company and beautiful music.


Sonatas for violin or cello were still a relatively novel idea when young Beethoven started writing them. In these two early works, Beethoven delights in the opportunities for musical conversation between piano and soloist, a musical to-and-fro between distinct individuals.


After interval, all three musicians come together for Arensky’s D Minor Piano Trio, a hidden gem of the repertoire. Anton Arensky was a Russian composer greatly influenced by Tchaikovsky, and his Trio is a model of clarity and directness. It’s all about melody here – whether buoyant or melancholy, light or sombre, this music always sings.
