This evening presents piano trios of two renowned pianist-composers. Rachmaninoff composed his first Trio élégiaque at the age of nineteen. Though still a student in Moscow, this early work features the lush harmonies and flashes of pianistic virtuosity for which Rachmaninoff would become famous. Its lugubrious conclusion is followed by the celestial trio of Turkish-born virtuoso Fazil Say, written the year after Felix Baumgartner took his record-breaking skydive from the stratosphere. The concert finishes with Brahms’s magisterial first Piano Quartet, complete with its irrepressibly crowd-pleasing Finale ‘alla zingarese’.
