2024 Spring Concert: The Cret String Trio
Saturday, March 9, 2024
The Cret String Trio - DEBUT TOUR
Rebecca Anderson, violin
David Yang, viola
Alan Richardson, cello
Arnold Schoenberg: String Trio, Opus 45
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Divertimento in Eb Major, K. 563
These two masterpieces mark the extreme ends of the string trio genre. Mozart's late work, written three years before his death, was the first work written for string trio (and Mozart played viola at the premiere!). Schoenberg's autobiographical trio, too, was composed at the end of his life while recovering from a near-fatal heart attack. Both works take the listener along emotional extremes that range from great sadness to unfettered joy.
For this concert, we are encouraging listeners to bring a tablet or iPad to follow along with the scores to both works which we will make available on this webpage. The Schoenberg score is used with the generous permission of Belmont Music Publishers.
The Spring Concert will be held at a private venue, "The Barrage," and the address will be printed on the tickets.
