Schweizer Klaviertrio: Chamber Gems
Piano Trio in C Major, KV 548 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Moments Musicaux (excerpts) - Rudolf Kelterborn
Litaniae, Op.70 - Paul Juon
Piano Trio No.2 in C Major, Op.87 - Johannes Brahms
The Swiss Piano Trio is one of the most acclaimed chamber ensembles of its generation. MusicFest Vancouver is pleased to welcome these three outstanding musicians to their final stop in a cross-Canada tour, following performances for Ottawa’s Chamberfest and Parry Sound’s Festival of the Sound. Pianist Martin Lucas Staub, violinist Angela Golubeva and cellist Sébastien Singer have chosen a playful work by Mozart to begin their program before introducing Vancouver audiences to two Swiss composers. Rudolf Kelterborn’s Moments Musicaux are brief and witty pieces written in 2006, while Paul Juon’s neo-Romantic tone poem Litaniae, Op.70 dates from 1920. The sweeping romanticism of Brahms’ Piano Trio No.2 in C Major closes the concert in grand style. Known for its power and clarity, this work abounds in gorgeous melody and is one of the most popular pieces in the trio repertoire.
