Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” and the Music of Dvorak

Sunday April 5, 2020 @ 3:30 PM

One of Beethoven’s masterpieces, the Sonata for Piano and Violin, Op.47, “Kreutzer” is the centerpiece of this concert. A piece of extraordinary virtuosity, power and tremendous scope, it is arguably one of the greatest contributions to the chamber music literature. The beautiful music of Antonin Dvorak offers a pleasing contrast. His Silent Woods for cello and Piano is a heavenly piece, expressive and intimate. We’ll conclude with Dvorak’s Piano Trio No.3 in F minor, Op.65, a monumental masterwork in its own right, and a glorious season finale.
