Miniatures and Epics
We are delighted to host the suave and riveting Horszowski Trio to perform a program of incredible variety and emotionalism. Robert Schumann’s stormy d minor trio is at once dramatic and tender, stormy and intimate. Elliot Carter’s succinct Epigrams are characterized by surprising and witty changes of direction and mood, and are the late, great American composer’s last work, written at the age of 103. Dmitri Shostakovich’s trio is rightfully now one of his most popular pieces, delivering the one-two punch of sorrow and transcendence that the composer is famous for.
