Beethoven Trio in B-flat Op. 97 “Archduke”

Pre-concert talk by Joseph Fort at 5:30pm in the Brockway Room

Beethoven's 'Archduke' trio has achieved mythical status in the repertoire. Probably Beethoven's last complete composition in this genre, it was also the last work he ever played on the piano publicly. This rich programme juxtaposes Beethoven's piece with two less well known piano trios: César Franck's Opus 1 from his student days, and another by Beethoven's contemporary Johann Nepomuk Hummel. This talk will consider the context in which these three trios were written, and will introduce and explore some of the music prior to the evening's performance.
