Musical friendship
TrioVanBeethoven in the MuTh

The deep friendship shared by Brahms and Dvořák bridged gaps of every kind; neither great distances nor the difference in their ages could affect it. Brahms’ openness toward other composers is well-known. It was evident even with those who were fundamentally different from him, such as Johann Strauss or, indeed, Antonín Dvořák. Brahms promoted Dvořák’s music from the outset, and gradually a genuine mutual regard developed between the two. This evening’s concert features two hugely important chamber music pieces from these giants of the Romantic. In his highly complex third trio, it almost seems as if Dvořák wants to show that his handling of motifs can be not only just as precise as that of Brahms, but also as intricate, if not even more so. Two “little delicacies”, but with symphonic proportions — the very best of piano trio literature!
