NightCap: Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio

About This Concert:

Extend your Tchaikovsky marathon experience and take in a Nightcap performance of Tchaikovsky’s one and only piano trio, featuring two of the Orchestra’s principal players.

TCHAIKOVSKY
Piano Trio in A minor

Fun Facts:

  • Tchaikovsky dedicated this piano trio to his close friend and mentor, Nikolai Rubinstein, who had passed away a few months before the work was composed. It was premiered on the first anniversary of his death.
  • Tchaikovsky turned down requests from his benefactress to compose a trio. He said: “I simply cannot endure the combination of piano with violin or cello. To my mind the timbre of these instruments will not blend.” He changed his mind not much later and composed his one and only piano trio.
  • Each ticket purchased includes one complimentary beverage (an actual night cap) to be enjoyed with the music.
