Masterclass MENACHEM PRESSLER & the MITHRAS TRIO

Ionel Manciu, violin
Leo Popplewell, cello
Dominic Degavino, piano

Beethoven Piano Trio in D, Op. 70, No. 1, 'The Ghost Trio'

During this masterclass, the Mithras Trio - First-Prize Winners in the 2019 Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition - will offer Beethoven’s Ghost Trio for critique by one of the acknowledged masters of the chamber-music genre.

Menahem Pressler is a founding member and the long-serving pianist of the Beaux Arts Trio, the ensemble which, for the more than five decades of its existence (1955-2008), was in the words of The Washington Post ‘the gold standard for trios throughout the world’.

The Mithras Trio was formed in 2017 at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and has since gone on to win a series of major international prizes, including the 67th Royal Over-Seas League Music Competition, Cavatina Chamber Music Competition, the St. James Chamber Music Competition, and most recently in Norway, taking the First Prize at the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in 2019.

Peterhouse is the oldest of the constituent colleges in the University of Cambridge.  It was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, on its current site close to the centre of the City.

The Peterhouse Theatre was built in 1883 to designs by one of the architectural masters of the Victorian era, Basil Champneys (1842-1935), whose other buildings include Newnham College and the Old Divinity School in Cambridge. Inspired by Palladio’s Teatro Olimpico at Vicenza (1580-85), the fine acoustics and intimate atmosphere of the Peterhouse Theatre make it the finest venue for chamber music in Cambridge, and one of the top three such venues in the whole country.
