Piano trio Semper Musica (Latvia) will introduce a bright program of chamber music to Pärnu listeners.
At the beginning of the concert, one of the most famous works of the chamber genre by Joseph Haydn will be performed - Trio in G major, the finale of which is written in the Hungarian style. Haydn spent most of his creative life in Hungary, where he regularly listened to gypsy and Hungarian folk music. He often brought folk elements into his works, and this trio is the most notable example. The striking effect of the finale is especially emphasized by two very tender previous movements.
Next, we will move to the 20th century. "Mozart-Adagio" by Arvo Pärt is a hommage to the violinist Oleg Kagan. Kagan had a special love for Mozart's music, and the composer immortalized the memory of his friend by using one of the most touching parts of the young Mozart's piano sonatas (Adagio from Sonata in F Major K.280). The style of Mozart and the style of Pärt's Tintinnambulum are in balance - so there is a spiritual meeting between the 18th and 20th centuries.
Johanness Brahm's Piano Trio in C Minor op.101 is rightfully considered a brilliant culmination in the development of this genre at the end of the 19th century. Brahms composed his last trio in the summer of 1886 when, at the peak of his powers, he also created an astonishing collection of works including a cello sonata, two violin sonatas and several songs. The trio is very concise in form, but at the same time extremely rich in content.
And at the end of the concert, three famous Hungarian dances by Brahms, arranged for piano trio, will be performed.
