The Auer cult of Veszprém that has emerged over the past few years inspired three professors of the Liszt Academy – pianist Balázs Fülei, violinist Péter Kováts and cellist István Varga – to establish the increasingly popular Auer Trio. The ensemble are regular guests of concert venues in Hungary and, naturally, the Auer Festival, but recently they have travelled as far as Rome and Shanghai for concerts. The current programme features all Schubert’s piano trios. The composer wrote two whole piano trios in his lifetime, the D. 898 in B-flat major and D. 929 in E-flat major. Sonatensatz D. 28 is just a single movement and was written when Schubert was 15 (the first such attempt we know of). The D. 897 Notturno is thought to have been the slow movement of a later, similarly unfinished work. Despite its inventive melodic phrasing, it remains one of Schubert’s lesser-known masterpieces.
