For this second program, the Trio will perform works that have taken on an identity of their own. Fauré’s Op. 120 is one of his final two compositions and is an unquestioned masterwork. The Shostakovich Trio was written in the height of terror in 1944—just after the death of his dear friend Ivan Sollertinsky. Introducing these two defining works is a song that has been adapted again and again from its original movie score setting, one of Astor Piazzolla’s most well-known compositions, Oblivion.
Admission is free but tickets are required.
