This week I was the guest on a podcast called The Classical Top Five.
During lockdown, a group of critics and broadcasters have been making their way through various ‘top five’ categories ranging from the serious to the light-hearted, and this week they turned their attention to trios.
There are many different kinds of trios – string trios, wind trios, trios for piano and various instruments – but as my expertise is in the glorious repertoire for violin, cello and piano, I confined myself to those. It was difficult to stick to just five – even a quick scribbling down of my favourites came to about 25 in the first instance!
Tommy Pearson, Richard Bratby and Charlotte Gardner are the resident experts on The Classical Top Five – they have already amassed quite an archive of ‘top five’ discussions available on podcast.
