In this second performance at the Lake District Summer Music Festival, the Berkeley Ensemble present a programme tying together several festival themes: from Haydn’s pithy trio, better known in its alternative version as the Piano Sonata Hob.XVI:40, on to a fellow Viennese composer’s crafty distillation of Strauss’s epic orchestral tone poem about the eponymous medieval prankster. Finally, Schubert’s remarkable masterpiece, taking Beethoven’s Septet as his model and surpassing it.
