Horszowski Trio does ‘Gypsy’
The Horszowski Trio will be performing at Congregation Ahavas Achim on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
The program will include works of Haydn, Tchaikovsky and Joan Tower, an American master.
Three works, each defining the style of its period, will be performed by Jesse Mills, violin, Raman Ramakrishnan, cello, and Rieko Aizawa, piano.
First will be Haydn’s “Gypsy” trio in G Major, his most well known piano trio with its final Hungarian rondo, followed by the preeminent American composer Joan Tower’s trio “For Daniel,” an intense and expressive single-movement work composed in 2004 and dedicated to her nephew, Daniel MacArthur.
Tchaikovsky’s trio in A minor, Op. 50, “In memory of a great man,” rounds out the concert. Dedicated to the composer’s close friend and mentor, Nikolai Rubenstein, the piece is a vast and rich two-movement work comprised of an introspective and brooding first movement followed by a set of variations that build to a state of joy and ecstasy. Tchaikovsky’s piano trio is one of his few works of chamber music and is written in a highly virtuosic and emotional style — many pianists claim that this is one of the most difficult Romantic piano parts ever written.
