Vienna Piano Trio
|SCHUBERT||Piano Trio in B-flat major, D. 898|
|SCHUBERT||Piano Trio in E-flat major, D. 929|
Among the world’s leading chamber ensembles, the Vienna Piano Trio excels at refined, expressive interpretations of works by its Viennese countrymen—Schubert, Brahms, Haydn. The ensemble makes its Cal Performances debut in a rare—and final—West Coast appearance, offering Berkeley audiences a deep dive into Schubert’s magnificent chamber music, performing the composer’s two piano trios back-to-back.
The B-flat Trio is an infectiously lively and lyrical work, among the most revered chamber pieces in the repertoire; the E-flat Trio traverses darker and more ominous terrain. Both works were composed in 1827, a year before Schubert’s death at 31—taken together, they contain multitudes.
“Finesse, unerring unity and deeply thought-through interpretations…. The Vienna Trio’s playing fed the soul hungry for a united musical vision and a deep dive into the message behind the notes” (The Washington Post).
