FRIDAYS IN THE LOFT CHAMBER SERIES:
BEETHOVEN AND BRAHMS
Music, wine, and conversation in a classically casual atmosphere.
TSO’s concertmaster Rossitza Jekova-Goza and pianist, Lyndon Meyer will perform Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 9, the“Kreutzer.” They will be joined by principal cellist, Kari Caldwell to perform Brahms’ Piano Trio in B major. The “Kreutzer,” written in the spring of 1803, just before Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, has something of the Eroica’s vast scope and slashing power. Concertante-like in style, both instruments virtuosic and equally dramatic, this work is possibly one of the most powerful pieces of chamber music ever written. Brahms ‘ Piano Trio (1853-54) is perhaps the most unabashedly Romantic creation of Brahms. As described by Austrian musicologist Richard Specht “the whole twenty-year-old composer with all his inner stress, his fullness of heart, his ardent longing; all the apprehension, pride, restraint and expectation of a soul in flower.”
