Argenta Trio with Theodore Kuchar
Sunday, May 12, 2013
Nightingale Concert Hall
Works by Schumann and Beethoven
The Argenta Trio is joined by maestro Theodore Kuchar on viola for our Second Season Finale. Robert Schumann's brilliant Piano Trio in F major, one of the happiest compositions by the composer, is infused with gorgeous sunny harmonies will enchant the audience in the first half of the program.
The piece de resistance will be Ferdinand Ries’ (Beethoven’s student and, later, private secretary) transcription for piano quartet of the Eroica Symphony, a work so rare it only exists in a handful of European libraries. We are presenting what is almost certainly a western U.S. premiere of the work.
