About The Late Night Trio

Piano trio
Newton Abbot
Versatile piano trio: performs as *soprano, violin, piano* - *2 violins, piano* - *violin, cello, piano* with a wide and varied repertoire.

The trio's members had been playing and performing music together for a number of years before founding the aptly named Late Night Trio in 2012. Rehearsals have been known to take up a large part of Tuesday nights, thoroughly enjoyed by the group. The available repertoire is being continuously enlarged by their own arrangements to include the solo violin as an obligato instrument, duetting with or accompanying the soprano voice. 2014/15/16 saw performances of Italian, French and German song repertoire, including works by Paolo Tosti, Reynaldo Hahn, Camille Saint-Saens and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. In spring 2017, another evening for the Italian Club Totnes followed on from a "Musical Postcards" concert in Littlehempston. One of the highlights of 2018 was teaming up with the up and coming violinist, 15 year-old Alex Badura (violin) for a concert in Exeter featuring Dvorak's Bagatells and excerpts from Schumann's piano quartet. The trio is also available as a Wedding and Function band, catering for classical, folk or more modern tastes.

Thank you, Late Night Trio - you were really great, just as I expected. It was fun making the arrangement for you to play and you made sure the whole team was there on time, looking good and playing with energy and such style. I’m guessing half the hall wouldn’t have known how good you are but the other half certainly enjoyed your music. And I was really happy to hear you play - and sing as well – what a voice you have. You are so versatile – cello, violin, lyra and singing and all to such a remarkably high standard. You played (and sang) a very good choice of music – and clearly you all loved playing it; I think that makes a big difference to the members of the audience’s own pleasure. Thank you so much for coming, for sorting yourselves out without any fuss and for making a significant difference to this celebration of the community hall's 50th anniversary! Your presence enabled the Courtenay Centre to raise its profile amongst the local movers and shakers, and the committee was amazed at the impact you made.
