The string trio arrangement by Dmitry Sitkovetsky of one of the world’s greatest pieces – Bach’s “Goldberg” variations – has become a favourite at Festivals throughout the world. We continue with Saint-Saens’ sparkling Barcarolle for Piano Quartet Op. 108; an old favourite, Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 1 with its famous “Gypsy” Rondo, is a suitably celebratory conclusion to our tenth Festival!
