Stravinsky, Janáček and Beethoven

About This Concert:

Beethoven’s final and most elegant piano trio and two unusual combinations of wind instruments (plus one violin!) adding a bit of early 20th-century musical energy.

STRAVINSKY
Pastorale

Janáček
Mládí, Sextet for Winds

BEETHOVEN
Piano Trio in B-flat major, Archduke

Fun Facts:

  • Beethoven’s Seventh and final piano trio was composed at an unusual time in his life when he was in relatively good spirits–which comes across beautifully in his sweeping, singing and smooth melodies.
  • Stravinsky’s Pastorale was originally composed for voice and piano. Only Stravinsky could take that combination and rewrite the piece for this unusual set of instruments: violin, oboe, English horn, clarinet and bassoon.
  • The original version of Pastorale was written for Rimsky-Korsakov’s daughter, Nadia, while Stravinsky was still his student.
