Grand Piano Trios—Schubert and Brahms
February 22, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM$15 – $52
Two enduring treasures of the chamber music canon lift us into the realm of the transcendent and channel the Viennese tradition: Schubert’s Trio in B flat Major and Brahms’ in B Major were both written or rewritten towards the end of the composers’ lives. Both display masterful sculpting of heavenly melodies coupled with passion and heady romanticism. Brahms makes use of the piano to create a symphonic sweep, and is in the best of hands with pianist Max Levinson, violinist Peter Zazofsky and cellist Yehuda Hanani Schubert’s trio, despite having been written in the difficult last year of his life, conveys triumph and tenderness. At Saint James Place, Great Barrington, MA.
