Pianist Uwe Matschke and cellist Kerstin Feltz have both been active for nearly four decades, giving concerts in major concert halls around the world. Their consummate artistry interacts with the impressive talent of up-and-coming soloist Danae Papamattheou-Matschke, producing a mix that is expected to be… explosive! The three soloists take on two towering works of the 19th and 20th century chamber music repertoire — two trios that have rightfully earned over time the admiration and preference of musicians and audiences alike. Brahms’ warm sound, always robust yet at the same time so delicately noble, is followed by Shostakovich’s cryptic whispers, macabre cries and harrowing lamentation in the face of the atrocities of World War II.
Johannes Brahms: Piano trio no. 1 in B major, opus 8
Dmitry Shostakovich: Piano trio no. 2 in E minor, opus 67
From the mature, introverted German romanticism of Brahms and the more extroverted music of Dvořák, which draws on the Czech folk music tradition, to the moody style of Armenian composer Babadjanian, the ever-active Trio El Greco presents a less frequently visited side of the repertoire for piano trio, revealing unexpected similarities between these quite different composers.
