SCHUBERT Piano Trio in B-flat Major, D. 898
Works from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries make up this exciting program. The Orion String Quartet performs one of the greatest quartets ever written—Mozart’s String Quartet in A Major, K. 464 (the fifth of six quartets he dedicated to Haydn)—and pianist Gilles Vonsattel, violinist Jennifer Gilbert, and cellist Mark Kosower perform Schubert’s exuberant Piano Trio in B-flat Major. The program also includes Françaix’s Trio for Violin, Viola & Cello and Takemitsu’s elegant A Bird Came Down the Walk, which takes its name from an Emily Dickinson poem and features Choong-Jin Chang, principal viola of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
