THREE well-known local musicians will be performing at the lunchtime concert at a city centre church next Wednesday, March 13.

The Amalia Trio comprises Jennifer Wigram (violin), Michael Wigram (cello) and Lynn Carter (piano).

They will be playing the Piano Trio by Tchaikovsky, Opus 50, a collection of variations written by him in memory of his great friend and mentor, Nikolai Rubinstein.

Reluctant at first to compose for such a combination of instruments, a tour de force eventually emerged, with a number of exhilarating variations extending the capabilities of all the soloists.

The concert will take place at 1pm at St Peter’s Church, St Albans, with a retiring collection for Grove House hospice.
