Three Trios : Beethoven,
Chausson and Schumann
Trios featured at the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur for the 50th season of Música Camerata Montreal
October 28, 2019
As part of their 50th anniversary, Música Camerata Montréal, one of Canada’s foremost chamber music ensembles is presenting a concert featuring “Three Trios: Beethoven, Chausson and Schumann”. The date for this exceptional event is November 16 at 6 pm at la Chapelle Historique du Bon Pasteur, 100 Sherbrooke E, in Montreal.
The artists for this occasion are Berta Rosenohl, piano; Luis Grinhauz, violin and Joshua Morris, cello. They will share the stage to interpret three lesser-known trios by these great composers.
Variations on ‘Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu’ op 121a
Ludwig van Beethoven
Trio in g minor op 3
Trio in g minor op 110
Three composers, three stories
Even though we can’t be certain, it is very possible that Beethoven wrote these variations on the theme “Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu” (I am Kakadu the tailor) from the comic singspiel ‘’The Sisters from Prague” by Wenzel Müller (1794), during his early years in Vienna.
As for Ernest Chausson, one of the most brilliant composers of the school of Cesar Franck, his works are, still nowadays as during his entire life, seldom performed. He died at the age of forty-four and left a considerable amount of works.
Schumann’s passionate and sensitive nature made him one of the greatest German composers of the romantic period. He composed a large amount of chamber music works and among his three piano trios considered by many as important as those of Beethoven.
This concert is co-sponsored by Ms. Vanda Treiser.
The other concerts of this special anniversary celebration will be:
April 4 «Romanticism of the 19th century «Mahler, Chopin and Richard Strauss»
May 9 «Russian Piano Quintets» plus Beethoven: Alexander Borodin, Beethoven and Nikolai Medtner
