More Information



Ludwig van Beethoven’s glorious Archduke Trio, a vital landmark of the piano trio literature and one of the composer’s crowning achievements, anchors this afternoon’s selection of chamber music masterworks. The program also features Erwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for Flute, Viola, and Double Bass, a delicious foray into the entrancing sound world of an uncommon trio of instruments; and Alexander Borodin’s tender love letter to his wife, the deeply felt Second String Quartet.
