One of Prokofiev’s most joyful creations anchors a concert of essential chamber works. Beethoven's groundbreaking String Trio cascades into Prokofiev’s equally sunny Violin Sonata, also in the luminous key of D major. Dvořák’s landmark American Quintet—a miracle of musical assimilation—occupies a hallowed, irreplaceable spot in the firmament of chamber music milestones, and on the desert island lists of listeners everywhere.
- Beethoven Trio in D major for Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 9, No. 2 (1797-98)
- Prokofiev Sonata in D major for Violin and Piano, Op. 94a (1943, arr. 1944)
- Dvořák Quintet in E-flat major for Two Violins, Two Violas, and Cello, Op. 97, “The American” (1893)
