Where: Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, Seattle
Johannes Brahms Sonata in E-flat Major for Viola and Piano, Op. 120 No. 2 Matthew Lipman, Andrew Armstrong Originally composed for the clarinet, the composer later transcribed the piece for viola to take advantage of the instrument’s lower register. Bohuslav Martinů Three Madrigals for Violin and Viola, H. 313 Scott St. John, Sharon Wei With only two instruments, Martinu creates an incredible range of tonal color and mood. The second piece is incredibly tender, and the finale hides several musical jokes, including a reference to Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony. Ludwig Van Beethoven Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in D Major, Op. 70 No. 1 “Ghost” Sean Lee, Efe Baltacıgil, Joyce Yang The slow middle movement gives this, one of the most famous of all piano trios, its nickname. The haunting melody is said to be inspired by the opening scene of Hamlet.
