The stunning violinist Christian Tetzlaff is joined by his sister Tanja (cellist) and Lars Vogt (pianist) to bring us a highly Romantic program.

The young Beethoven shocked the elderly master Haydn with Opus 1 #3 when they first met. Wonderful piece, opus 1 #3.

Smetana’s only piano trio was written in response to the tragedy of his 4-year-old daughter’s death. Its grief-stricken and elegiac character is unmistakable. One of the most powerful works for piano trio, it is Influenced by passionate Eastern-European folk music, embracing a piano style more of Liszt than of Chopin.

Schubert’s Trio in B-flat, a large, lively, and lyrical work, was written during his final illness – simultaneously with his dark and brooding final work, the song cycle, Winterreise. Robert Schumann said of the Trio, “One glance at Schubert’s Opus 99 and the troubles of our human existence disappear – and all the world is fresh and bright again.”
