4.20.18 Horszowski Trio: Setting Sun Still Burns Brightly

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

Brahms vowed to retire in 1890, but he wrote numerous additional works. He took it upon himself to return to a piece he wrote when he was 20 years old—his first piano trio. His revisions lend a mature counterpoint to the original youthful ebullience, and make it one of his first and last pieces. Elliot Carter, a notable Longy alum, also composed throughout his “golden years”, and the “H” Trio will pair Brahms’ trio with one of the last works Carter wrote at the age of 103. 

Program:

Brahms: Piano Trio #3 in c minor, Op.101

Brahms: Piano Trio #2 in C Major, Op.86

 -----

Carter: Epigrams for Piano Trio (2012)

Brahms: Piano Trio #1 in B Major, Op.8 

 

Admission is free but tickets are required.
