Piano trios Chamber Music

Overview

Chamber music was born out of people’s need to hold their social gatherings to the sound of (good) music. Composers like Haydn and Schubert made sure to accompany these gatherings with music of unfathomable essence and quality, despite its apparent simplicity. However, the romantic trios of later times, such as Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio no. 2, began to pose new challenges for performers, by boldly introducing the requirement for scintillating virtuosity. And if we were to take a leap in time to 20th century Argentina, we would witness the great extent to which the country’s proud, sensual domestic dance, the tango, has penetrated chamber music, thanks to the inexhaustible talent of Astor Piazzolla.
