  1. Carnival Samba 'Floreant' for piano trio - Sally Beamish
  2. Piano Trio No 1 in B (revised version) Op 8 - Johannes Brahms
  3. Verklärte Nacht, for string sextet Op 4 - Arnold Schoenberg

We open the music side of the Festival with a bang - a big-boned samba by well known British composer and violist Sally Beamish. The remainder of the programme appears to consist of two early works. Brahms is represented by his sparkling first piano trio. However, he substantially revised it in 1889, smoothing off some of his youthful excesses. Schoenberg’s “Verklärte Nacht” is gorgeously romantic, a style he soon dropped in favour of the intricacies of twelve-tone technique.
