Two of Canada’s most inspiring instrumentalists

Mayda Bruce
  • Liszt: Elégie no. 1 for ’Cello and Piano
  • Brahms: E minor ’Cello Sonata, Op. 38
  • Narvey: Archetypes
  • Chopin: Sonata for ’Cello & Piano, Op. 65

Vogt’s playing: ‘rare grandeur’ The Times; ‘the audience was literally enraptured’ Le Républicain

Mayda Narvey and Bruce Vogt (29th August) need little introduction to Trunch audiences, always drawing big audiences by dint not only of their superb musicianship, but also of their engaging communication with the audience.

They are two of the finest Canadian musicians of their generation.

Mayda has studied with some of the greatest international names associated with ‘cello (Janos starker, Bernard Greenhouse, amongst others) and, as well as being a regular recitalist, she has performed as a concerto soloist with principal Canadian orchestras, such as the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting) Orchestra.

Bruce is Professor of Piano and Head of Keyboard Studies at the University of Victoria, Vancouver. He is in demand as an inspirational soloist and teacher across the world. We are very grateful that he loves playing in Trunch and is fitting in a visit en route to giving masterclasses in the Far East and Germany.

Their programme includes the supremely lyrical E minor Sonata of Brahms; Chopin’s Cello Sonata, one of his last works; Liszt’s Elégie no 1; and a short work written by Mayda, Archetypes. This is what the press have had to say about Bruce’s playing: ‘rare grandeur’ - The Times; ‘the audience was literally enraptured’ - Le Républicain. More details and pictures on:;
