We’ll open our season in the 18th Century in the capable hands of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and listen to his Duo for Violin and Viola in Bb major, K 424. His wide variety of lyrical ideas and rich harmonies create a work of substance where it’s hard to believe only two are playing. Franz Joseph Haydn’s most popular trio, his Piano Trio No. 39 in G major, “Gypsy Trio” is elegant and perfectly crafted, and gains its nickname from the gypsy folk tunes of its spirited finale. This concert culminates in Cesar Franck’s magnificent Piano Quintet in F minor, Op.34. This monumental and emotional work is written in lush textures and soaring melodies.
