After the English Piano Trio’s all-Mozart programme last month they turn to a D minor Trio by the man Schumann hailed as “the Mozart of the 19th century”. The 20 year-old Mendelssohn’s volcanic Op. 49 follows Janáček’s powerful sonata, an act of protest commemorating a worker fatally bayoneted during a protest rally.
