Concert Overview | 8:00pm
Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in E Major, K. 542
This Piano Trio was supposed to be for amateur musicians but was seen as far too-demanding since Mozart broke the mold and gave equal weight to all the players, not just as a showpiece for the piano.
Duo for Violin and Cello
After serving in WWI, Schulhoff returned to composing joining the avant garde of his day. This duo, composed in 1925, uses dynamics as well a playing techniques to create an incredible range of sound for just two musicians.
String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 44 No. 3
Rather than innovating with new forms, Felix Mendelssohn relied on perfecting those from an earlier age. This string quartet exemplifies this by developing a small melody on a massive scale, ala Beethoven.
