About This Performance

Four distinguished artists collaborate for a program of chamber music masterpieces. Many regard Dvořák’s Piano Trio No. 3 in F-Minor as a milestone. It is uncharacteristically serious, stormy, and fraught with tragic conflict—unusual for a man generally regarded as sanguine and uncomplicated—and it is supposed that Dvořák was expressing his grief over the death of his mother. Brahms wrote his ambitious Piano Quartet No. 1 in G Minor at the age of twenty-eight. The third composition in what would become an oeuvre of some twenty-six chamber music masterworks, this quartet enjoys a fine reputation in no small part due to the vigorously effective Gypsy Rondo Finale.
