Program

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

(1756–1791)

Trio in E-flat major for Clarinet, Viola, and Piano, K. 498, “Kegelstatt”

(1786)
Quick Note

Quick Note

Mozart's "Kegelstatt" Trio was reportedly composed while playing skittles (a lawn game similar to bowling), hence its nickname.

Listen for the seamless blending of the clarinet, viola, and piano voices as Mozart showcases the unique timbres and expressive capabilities of each instrument.

Richard Strauss

(1864–1949)

Sonata in E-flat major for Violin and Piano, Op. 18

(1887–88)
Quick Note

Quick Note

Strauss's Sonata showcases the composer's early mastery of the Romantic style–written when he was just 23 years old.

Listen for Strauss's lush harmonies and expansive melodies, as well as his innovative approach to form and structure.

Robert Schumann

(1810–1856)

Fantasiestücke (Fantasy Pieces) for Clarinet and Piano, Op. 73

(1849)
Quick Note

Quick Note

Schumann's "Fantasiestücke" is notable for being inspired by Schumann's fascination with literature, particularly the characters and scenes found in Romantic literature, which he sought to capture through music.

Listen for the vivid musical storytelling, as each piece explores different moods and emotions, ranging from tender lyricism to lively energy.

Ernő Dohnányi

(1877–1960)

Quintet No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, and Cello, Op. 1

(1895)
Quick Note

Quick Note

Dohnányi's Quintet No. 1 serves as the composer's debut opus, written at the age of 18 during his studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest.

Pay attention to the thematic development throughout the piece, as Dohnányi navigates through various emotions and moods, from dramatic intensity in the first movement to lyrical tenderness or introspection in the second movement.
