Concert Overview

Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-flat Major, K. 481

With his 33rd violin sonata, Mozart created one of his most experimental works, exploring a wide range of key signatures and harmonics.

String Quintet in G Major, Op. 111

Brahms originally conceived this as a symphony, and the density of the first and last movements sounds as if it were scored for more than just five instruments.

Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in A minor

To create as much instrumental color for this small ensemble, Ravel used extreme ranges of sound and technique to produce dramatic contrasts.
