Hemsing. Müller-Schott. Stadtfeld.

Sat 26. 3. 2022

The long-time festival friends Daniel Müller-Schott and Martin Stadtfeld, together with the Norwegian violinist Eldbjørg Hemsing, will form a piano trio on the opening weekend: even Beethoven's Opus 1 was dedicated to the piano trio genre. Far more important, however, is his contribution listed as Opus 70/1, which is nicknamed the »Geistertrio« because of the spooky middle movement. While the German classical composer eventually wrote a total of seven piano trios in several movements, the Norwegian Edward Grieg completed only a single, melancholic and passionate piece for this instrumentation, the Andante con moto. Peter Tchaikovsky, on the other hand, actually rejected piano trios altogether for tonal reasons - and yet created his most valuable chamber music work with the A minor Trio.
