Cal Arte Ensemble Sunday Gallery Chamber Concert

The Cal Arte Ensemble present two magnificent piano trios in their Sunday Gallery Series at the Triton Museum of Art. The Shostakovich Trio No. 2 in E minor is a classic work from this prolific Russian composer who somehow managed to retain his true voice despite the ever present menace of the Stalin regime with which he had to contend sometimes at risk to his own life. The last movement of this work presents a macabre form of Jewish theme almost like a demonic version of Fiddler on The Roof. The second work is the Archduke Trio by Beethoven, considered to be one of the greatest works for piano trio, and dedicated to his long time student, benefactor and true friend, the Archduke Rudolph of Austria. Considered to be his crowning masterpiece in his cycle of piano trios, the Archduke Trio befits the nobleness of its dedicatee and was one of the works that Beethoven later regarded as one of his finest creations.
