Nicola Benedetti, Leonard Elschenbroich, Alexei Grynyuk

Ravel – Trio for piano, violin and cello in A minor
Turnage – Duo for cello and violin
Brahms – Piano Trio no 1 in B major, Op. 8


The Patron of The Cumnock Tryst Nicola Benedetti is back! This time she appears with her trio partners Leonard Elschenbroich, cello and Alexei Grynyuk, piano. In the beautiful and intimate setting of Trinity Church we will hear them in the ravishing Trio for piano, violin and cello in A minor by Ravel, one of Brahms’ great early chamber works - his Op 8 Trio, and a fascinating new work by the brilliant Mark Anthony Turnage. This will be an exciting event for Cumnock as Scotland’s great violinist comes home to Ayrshire! 

When Nicola Benedetti won the BBC Young Musician of the Year over a decade ago, Scotland was rightly proud. She grew up in West Kilbride and has family links with East Ayrshire too. She has gone on to a stellar international career, but she has never forgotten her roots. In this concert, with her esteemed colleagues, we hear her as a brilliant chamber musician.
