Program Notes
Mozart’s Piano Trio was intended for amateur musicians, but it was seen as far too demanding, because he broke the mold and gave equal weight to all the players – and didn’t only create a showpiece for the piano.

After serving in WWI, Schulhoff returned to composing, joining the avant garde of his day. This duo, composed in 1925, uses dynamics as well as playing techniques to create an incredible range of sound for just two musicians.

Rather than innovating with new forms, Mendelssohn relied on perfecting those from an earlier age. This string quartet exemplifies this by developing a small melody on a massive scale à la Beethoven.
