ANATOMY OF A MELODY – BEETHOVEN, BRAHMS AND SCHOENFIELD

$45 Orchestra & Mezzanine / $25 Balcony

The heavenly Brahms Piano Quartet Opus 26 is as close to symphonic scale as you get in chamber music. With its drama and gypsy vigor, it delivers an enthralling range of emotions. Beethoven’s Trio in B-Flat Major was intended to please the Viennese public, and to ensure its success, Beethoven incorporated a tune from a popular comic opera. These will be followed by a performance of a just-penned piece built on the same theme with its own fresh variations. Paul Schoenfield (of Café Music fame), too, is part of a tradition of including improbable popular themes to sublime effect.

Renana Gutman, piano
Miriam Fried, violin
Paul Biss, viola
Yehuda Hanani, cello
