Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Benefit – “Brilliance and Soul”

2429 Montauk Highway
Bridgehampton, New York 11932

While he may not have invented it, Mozart brought the piano trio to full maturity, and the K. 502 B-flat trio is among the finest ever to be written. Full of invention, sonic wonder, and perfect balance, it is a testament to the composer at the height of his compositional powers. Françaix’s evocative and humorous String Trio is the perfect companion. The second half of the program probes the emotional realm, first with Philippe Hersant’s evocative musings on the death of Helios followed by what is perhaps the greatest piano quartet in the literature, Schumann’s sublime E-flat quartet, whose slow movement contains one of the most beautiful and heartfelt melodies ever written.
