Summer Festival: Prelude Performance II

Presented by [email protected]

Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio in c minor, op. 66, is a portrait of Romantic Sturm und Drang, whose exuberant finale illustrates an existential triumph. Smetana’s haunting Piano Trio in g minor, composed while mourning the death of the composer’s four-year-old daughter, is a work of overwhelming pathos. This summer’s second Prelude juxtaposes two piano trios by distinct compositional voices, yet which share in common their deep expressivity and ecstatic lyricism.
