Presented by Camerata Pacifica
Camerata Pacifica’s “Why Beethoven?” project continues, and the 30th season opens, with a program featuring Beethoven’s Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 97, “Archduke.” Dedicated to one of his closest patrons, Archduke Rudolph of Austria, this mighty work redefined the piano trio as the Eroica did the symphony. (Its 1814 premiere was Beethoven’s last public appearance at the keyboard.) As a prelude to the Archduke, Lera Auerbach’s wide-ranging 24 Preludes for Violin and Piano will open the concert and the season.
