About This Performance

PCMS reunites three of our favorite musicians in an evening dedicated to Schubert. At the core of this program is Schubert’s late masterpiece, the E-flat Major Piano Trio, which Schubert’s biographer, Brian Newbold describes as “a state of the art product of Schubert at the height of his powers, running the gamut of expression from joyful affirmation to rapt meditation.”

Schubert: Violin Sonata in A Minor, D. 385
Schubert: Piano Trio in E-flat Major, D. 929
