Program

  • Joseph Haydn Piano Trio in C major (Hob. XV:27)
  • Josef Suk Elegy, Op. 23 — „Pod dojmem Zeyerova Vyšehrad“
  • Bedřich Smetana Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 15

The Austrian Piano Trio Alba presents masterpieces of the literature from Austria and Bohemia. The C-major work is one of the most popular and virtuosic trios by Haydn, the “inventor” of the piano trio. Suk’s wonderfully melodious Elegy offers a time of meditation before the major offering of the evening, Smetana’s great G-minor Trio, a work that shows both intimacy and symphonic momentum and is one of the most emotional, beautiful and brilliant piano trios of the Romantic period.
