This evening’s concert features two of the greatest works in the piano trio repertoire: Beethoven’s “Ghost Trio” takes the listener on an exhilarating journey of beauty and drama, written at the height of the composer’s creative powers. This is contrasted with the heavily romantic Piano Trio in B major, by a young Brahms combining virtuosity with beautiful singing melodies shared between all three instruments.
