Late-afternoon concert (3:3)

Go to an early concert, straight from work or before the evening’s doings, and listen this spring to one of the country’s finest chamber music ensembles, Trio con Brio. In 2019, they celebrated their 20th anniversary, and their form curve has been consistently exceptionally high throughout the two decades!

While Shostakovich was composing his second piano trio at the end of 1943, he was also starting to move away from large-scale orchestral works. But shortly after Shostakovich had completed the first movement, his closest and dearest friend, Ivan Sollertinsky, died at the young age of 41. Shostakovich was shattered by the news of his friend’s death and dedicated the piano trio to Sollertinsky.
