Vienna Piano Trio

viennapianotrioFrom the very first bars, I knew this was going to be a satisfying performance with the Vienna Piano Trio – one of the best I’ve seen on the stage of the Chamber Music Society of Bethlehem. On the program we heard:

  • Haydn’s Piano Trio in C Major, Hob. XV:27 (1797)
  • Beethoven’s Piano Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 70, No. 2 (1808)
  • Saint-Saens’ Piano Trio No. 2 in e minor, Op. 92 (1892)

I enjoyed all three selections, but particularly the Saint-Saens. I had not heard it and enjoyed it’s lush harmonies and virtuosic playing.

The Vienna Piano Trio should return to Bethlehem soon. No audition required!

  1. I’ve been lucky enough to see the Vienna Piano Trio many times over the years. I hadn’t heard much about them for some time, so it was nice to come across a reference to them, and to see that they’re still performing (albeit with a new violinist) and giving pleasure. They really are an exceptional group.
