St Anne’s Recital: Pleyel Ensemble – Arnold Cooke Piano Trio
June 23 @ 3:30 pm - 4:15 pmFree (with a retiring collection)
Written between 1941 and 1944, the piano trio of Arnold Cooke came into being while the composer was serving in
the Royal Navy. He wrote some of it whilst aboard the DS Thames, a large, ocean-going Dutch tug where life was relatively quiet, as much time was spent riding at anchor waiting for jobs to come in. This is a work premièred in 1947 during a live BBC broadcast but which disappeared from the concert platform from about 1960 until the present day when today’s performers rediscovered the work.
Before and after every recital, home-made cakes and cream teas can be enjoyed in the church’s Parish Rooms and surrounding picturesque grounds.
