A piano master-class Review by AH

Tickhill Music Society continued its 40th season of concerts with an exhilarating recital by the young pianist Jinah Shim. She introduced her programme in gentle fashion with a Mozart sonata which nevertheless required great dexterity in its lively outer movements. This was followed by three Schubert impromptus – familiar pieces which were brought to life in thrilling fashion by Jinah Shim’s fresh interpretation.

The second half opened with one of Liszt’s tone poems, his Ballade no. 2. Authorities are divided as to whether it was inspired by the romantic story of Hero and Leander, or a more salacious horror story which was popular at the time. Regardless of its origins the piece contains contrasting stormy and romantic passages, and Jinah Shim responded by being at times muscular and at other times delicate. A piece of such swirling emotions required a suitable antidote, and this was provided by Chopin’s Scherzo no. 2, which received a lyrical and virtuosic interpretation.

The programme was completed with L’Isle Joyeuse by Debussy, which enchants with its pianistic picture painting. To the delight of a large and appreciative audience this was not the end of the evening, as Jinah Shim was persuaded to return for an encore in the form of the sarabande from Bach’s French Suite, bringing to a close another outstanding performance by a talented and charming musician.

Review by PM of the concert given on 14th October by the splendid Trio Martinu

For the second concert of Tickhill Music Society’s 40th Anniversary season we returned to the normal venue of St. Mary’s School where a substantial audience gathered to hear a concert by the all-male Trio Martinu formed in Prague in 1990. The group takes its name from the Czech violinist and composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959).
Their programme began with Schubert’s Notturno (which means ‘night-piece’). This is a lyrical and sonorous work where the brilliant piano part soared over the strings whose support was occasionally a crisp, syncopated pizzicato.
The Piano Trio in C minor Op 101, was written in 1886 while Brahms was on holiday (a working holiday!) in Switzerland. It has the usual four movements, the first being labelled ‘Allegro energico’ where the team produced some sharp precision and demonstrated a beautiful balance of the three instruments. The second movement ‘Presto’ was rich in jerky rhythms and the final two movements rounded off a very satisfying work full of the characteristic Brahmsian ‘fingerprints’.
After the interval we were treated to a rather less well-known Dvorak Trio, the op 65 work. Once again the three players showed what a truly well integrated unit they were. The tumultuous applause which followed not only showed how much the music had been appreciated and enjoyed, but also brought forth an encore in the form of a lively movement from the Dumky trio. This is a type of Slavonic folk ballad where elegiac and fast tempi alternate. It brought to a rousing end a most entertaining and enjoyable concert.
