Sunday Music Series | “Music for Three: Ludwig van Beethoven & Anton Arensky"

The NBMAA’s longstanding monthly concert series, featuring local & regional performances from a variety of musical genres.

Veronika Schreiber, violiin
Ignacy Gaydamovich, cello
Corbin Beisner, piano

The “Piano Trio” format, first originated during music’s Baroque period, gained popularity with composers such as Franz Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart during the Classical period, and was expanded further in form and expression by Ludwig Van Beethoven, culminating in his favorite, Piano Trio in C minor, Op.1 No.3, completed in 1795.

In contrast, the 19th-century Russian composer Anton Arensky’s “Trio in D minor” is a Romantic-era work; sorrowful, but punctuated with bright and dancing phrases, written in memory of Karl Davydov, the “Czar of Cellists.”
