Trio Zimmermann

Bach’s Goldberg Variations
Wednesday 23 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Trio Zimmermann

Schoenberg String Trio
J. S. Bach: Goldberg-Variationen BWV 988 (Version for string trio)

Trio Zimmermann is a remarkable chamber group: three performers – violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltéra – who are revered international soloists in their own right, and who together have reinvigorated the string trio as a musical form.

Following inspirational International Festival recitals in 2010, 2012 and 2015, they return with one of the true monuments of classical music. Bach’s mighty Goldberg Variations takes the listener on a profound journey through endless invention and boundless emotion. Trio Zimmermann pair it with the searching intensity of Schoenberg’s thrillingly virtuosic String Trio.
