Minerva Piano Trio: Brahms Workshop.

St John’s Smith Square and the Minerva Piano Trio invite three Piano Trio ensembles for a special workshop to explore the rarely performed version of Brahms’s Piano Trio in B major Op. 8 (1854 version).

The Minerva Piano Trio will share insights gained from their experience in performing this very different version of Brahms's Op. 8, and from the latest Brahms research through pianist Annie Yim’s doctoral thesis* on Schumann and Brahms.
