Monday August 24 @ 7pm
W.A. Mozart - Piano Trio in E major K. 542
Robert Schumann - Piano Trio in G minor, Op.110
Joaquín Turina - Piano Trio No.2 in B minor
Hans Werner Henze - Adagio Adagio
Firebird's second concert for 2015 centres upon European music spanning two hundred years. The music of Mozart and Schumann open the program with works of characteristic beauty and grace, followed by the little-known, beguiling trio by the Spanish nationalist Joaquín Turina. Henze's Serenade for piano trio, tautologically named Adagio Adagio, draws on Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in which Puck utters 'If we shadows have offended'.
