Pomegranate Piano Trio
The Pomegranate Trio's performance of my Trio was splendid. A truly 'felt' interpretation which seemed to live inside the legendary world of the piece. And what a thrill to be coupled with the 'Ghost' trio which was played magnificently. Beethoven's extraordinary range, the physical energy and strange mysteries, were all un-nervingly captured.
music brought to life with such stunning virtuosity.

Since giving its debut concert at the Bishopsgate Institute for the City of London Festival in January 2014 the Pomegranate Piano Trio, formed of Fenella Barton (violin), cellist Rebecca Hepplewhite and Andrew West (piano), has quickly established a reputation for fine performances. The trio now pursues a busy concert diary playing imaginative and engaging programmes throughout England, Scotland and Wales. As highly successful musicians in their own right, the highlights of their combined solo and chamber concerts have been at venues such as the Wigmore Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wiener Musikverein, La Salle Cortot, Paris The Lincoln Center, New York, and Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
Recent engagements include appearances at St George’s Brandon Hill, Cheltenham Pump Room, and a wide-ranging Scottish tour, which focussed on masterpieces by Beethoven, Clara Schumann and Ravel alongside educational workships and school concerts.”
