Frank Bridge Phantasie Trio in C minor
Ravel Piano Trio in A minor
Brahms Trio in Bb major, Op 8


The final concert of the 2007 Shaldon Festival on the Sunday lived up to and beyond expectations. Winners of the 2005 Parkhouse International Chamber Music Competition, the exciting and dynamic group of three young musicians collectively known as DIMENSION, Hyung-Ki Joo, piano, Rafal Zambrzycki-Payne, violin and Thomas Carroll, cello, gave a masterful performance of three piano trios. Opening with the Phantasie Trio in C minor by Frank Bridge, the power and attack of their playing was spine tingling. Many consider Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor to be one of the composer’s finest works. The four movements demonstrated the full dynamic range and musical ability of this trio: the lovely swaying rhythm of the first, technical brilliance in the second, spell binding beauty of the third with some exquisite cello playing and the spectacular and powerful climax of the lively Finale.

Introducing Brahm’s Piano Trio No 1 in B major as a much loved and central piece of their repertoire DIMENSION dedicated this performance to Eileen Croxford, the Shaldon Festival President and a founding member of the Parkhouse Award, in recognition of the concert opportunities the Award has given them. The rapport between the three players shone through this work and it was a consummate display of musicianship. The shouts of encore and a standing ovation were well deserved and a fitting end to another very successful Festival.
