Gildenhorn Recital Hall
Cello Evelyn Elsing
Faculty artists David Salness and Mayron Tsong, as well as
former School of Music cello professor Evelyn Elsing, come together to perform
music by Beethoven and Brahms.
In keeping with the superior
quality of all those works he dedicated to his royal patron, Beethoven's
Archduke Trio reigns supreme: this was Beethoven's finest effort for piano and
strings, and arguably the greatest piano trio in the literature.
in 1882 when Brahms was 49 years old, the Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major, Op. 87 is
a mature work that might effectively be regarded as Brahms’ first unequivocal
masterpiece for the piano trio.
