In the 18th and 19th centuries, composers often created — or allowed others to create — chamber arrangements of their orchestral works so that more people could hear their music. In this program, the celebrated trio performs both works originally written for piano trio as well as an arrangement of one of Beethoven’s iconic symphonies, maintaining the power and immediacy of his orchestral work in an intimate arrangement. “One could only marvel at how intuitive and spontaneous these performances were,” raved the Chicago Tribune, “with each player kindling immediate responses from his colleagues. … Chamber music doesn’t get any better than this.”
