From 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!
