Concert Overview | 8:00pm
Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in B-flat Major, D. 581
This work by Schubert exists in two versions. The second one includes more solo moments for both the violinist and violist and gives the impression of Schubert’s later music full of emotion that defined him.
Trio for Oboe, Bassoon and Piano
The first true success in the field of chamber music, Poulenc found his voice by combining piano (which he often played) with his beloved woodwinds. This work has a playful nature throughout.
Quintet for Piano and Strings in F minor, Op. 34
One of the great pieces in the repertoire, this work started as a string quintet before Brahms abandoned that version for a two piano version. Not satisfied with that version, he reworked it once more for a piano quintet.
