Beethoven • Piano Trio in C minor, Op. 1 No. 3
Bernstein • Piano Trio
Shostakovich • Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67
Now in its 23rd Season, the Gemini Piano Trio will perform Beethoven’s Trio No. 3 in C minor, a piece that is a break from classical conformity. Leonard Bernstein’s Piano Trio is a nod to the centennial of his birth this year. Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, written during World War 2 in the wake of the siege of Leningrad and the loss of his closest friend, is filled with moods of bleakness, lament, and a wild dance of destruction!
