Pianists Dan and Joe Tong, and violinist Sara Trickey present a programme of contrasting works composed during the First World War, ranging from Janáček’s searing Violin Sonata to the nostalgia of Ravel and Elgar. En route they take in the Parisian chic of the teenaged Poulenc, Sibelius in contemplation of nature, and Rachmaninov’s intense, impassioned Etudes Tableaux.
