In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, clarinettist Michael Collins, cellist Guy Johnston and pianist Leon McCawley come together to perform a varied programme of works. These include an early trio by Beethoven dedicated to one of his first aristocratic patrons, and a trio by Brahms which was inspired by hearing the clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld rehearse. Also included is one of Rachmaninov's most famous works, his Vocalise, and an intimate late-romantic miniature by Glière.

In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, the Gould Piano Trio perform Mozart's Trio K502, which shows no sign of being written just a few days after the death of the composer's second child. Also performed is the Piano Trio No.1 by Anton Arensky; an eclectic work with hints of Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsy which, despite Rimsky-Korsakov's predictions that Arensky's music would disappear without trace, has remained a favourite in this genre.

In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, the Lendvai Trio perform Beethoven's String Trio Op.9 No.1, which was dedicated to one of the composer's earliest patrons and intended to challenge the listener with its symphonic approach. Also performed is one of Taneyev's mature works, his String Trio Op.31. It originally included an instrument which never became popular, the tenor viola, and was later replaced by the cello.

In a recital from St Mary's Church at Hay-on-Wye, piano duo Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow perform Mozart's Sonata in C KV521; once described by Mozart himself as 'rather difficult'. Also performed is Purgold's arrangement of Rimsky-Korsakov's Symphony No.2. Antar was an irresistible warrior and poet from Arabian literature, who at Balakirev's and Mussorgsky's suggestion, Rimsky-Korsakov brings to life in this four movement symphonic suite.
