CZECH PIANO TRIO TO PERFORM IN BIDEFORD


The Martinu Piano Trio was formed at the Prague Conservatoire in 1990. Its current line-up of Jaroslav Matejka – cello, Pavel Safarik – violin and Petr Jirikovský – piano has remained unchanged since 1993; all of them are outstanding soloists.

They will give the final concert in Bideford Music Club’s 60th anniversary season and will perform music by Suk, Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert.

They have taken part in many international competitions and masterclasses. In 1995 the ensemble received the annual Award of the Czech Chamber Music Society attached to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra.
During the 25 years since their formation the ensemble have performed in many countries and have appeared at major international festivals and venues. For their anniversary they celebrated by playing some prestigious concerts at home in Prague and abroad.

They have made six CD’s, the last one was released in 2014. In the season 2017/2018 they plan to record the complete Bohuslav Martinu piano trios as well as touring the Netherlands and Great Britain.

This concert will be held on Wednesday 7th March at the Methodist Church Hall, High Street, Bideford at 7.30 pm. Tickets are available at the door, £13.50, with children and students free. For more information please contact 01237 423112.
