Milton Keynes Music Service Piano Trio

Milton Keynes Music Service is a council based service that aims to offer musical experiences to children all over Milton Keynes. It offers a variety of musical pathways beginning with first access opportunities to the majority of schools in the area. Children then get the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in smaller groups if they wish.

The ensemble will play the first movement, Allegro con Fuoco, from Chopin's Piano Trio in G minor. Chopin was a musical prodigy who had been published as a composer before his eighth birthday. He wrote this work while still studying at the Warsaw Conservatory where he was described as “extremely talented” and “a musical genius.” The first movement has been called a “dark and agitated” movement and the musical direction from Chopin is “quickly and with fire.”
