Millsaps Piano Trio
September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
No tickets required.
Alex Encinas, Taylis Fernandez, Rachel Heard and Lynn Raley perform two landmark works for piano, violin and cello: Beethoven’s C minor Trio, Op. 1 #3, and Mendelssohn’s beloved D minor Trio, Op. 49. The Beethoven Trio was published in his Opus 1 set of trios, the first works the ambitious 25-year old composer introduced to the Viennese public. Beethoven literally helped shape the coming musical Romanticism and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio, published 45 years after the Beethoven trio, is Romanticism in full bloom, full of gorgeous tunes and virtuoso passages.
