Schubert Adagio in E flat, D897 Nottorno
Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht
Schubert Piano Trio in B flat, D898
Our second evening concert journeys to Vienna for works written nearly a century apart. Trio Cortàzar and Trio Opal show us the development of Schubert's masterly Trio in B flat, firstly by playing its original slow movement - the Notturno - before a full performance of this astonishing and life-affirming work as it was eventually published. In between, Trio Cortàzar give us Schoenberg's impassioned and technicolour score for Verklärte Nacht, music from the composer's early Romantic world and of which he remained proud until the end of his life.
