Solarek Piano Trio:

The Schumann/Brahms Triangle



The Solarek Piano Trio will present an hour of romantic piano trios. Robert Schumann wrote his Fantasiestücke two years after marrying his beloved Clara Wieck in 1840. This is followed by the beautiful Andante from Clara Schumann’s piano trio written in 1846 while she was pregnant with her fourth child. Some intriguing readings from letters between Clara and Johannes Brahms will precede the third work of the afternoon: Brahms’s C minor Trio, which he wrote while in Switzerland  in 1883.
