Brahms’s Trios I

Brahms:
Clarinet Trio in A minor, Op. 114
Brahms:
Piano Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op. 101
Brahms:
Piano Trio No. 2 in C major, Op. 87
Miriam Helms Ålien (violin), Ildikó Szabó (cello), István Lajkó (piano), Matthias Schorn (clarinet)

Miriam Helms Ålien, the Norwegian violinist known for her extraordinarily mature musicality despite her youth, Ildikó Szabó, who took second place at the 2014 Pablo Casals Cello Competition, and István Lajkó, teacher at the piano department of the Liszt Academy, are the principal players in the two concerts of the Complete Works Live series in 2018. For this recital the focus is on the trios of Johannes Brahms, born 185 years ago. The series is set up so that it is a little like travelling backwards in time: the first concert features later works. Written in 1891, the Clarinet Trio in A minor was for the famous clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld; he was also the inspiration behind the Clarinet Quintet in B minor and the final chamber works of Brahms, the clarinet sonatas, opus 120. Correspondence suggests that Brahms considered the Piano Trio in C major one of his most successful works. The Piano Trio in C minor, composed in 1886 after completion of the symphonies, is a true chamber music-like, concise masterpiece. Clarinettist Matthias Schorn of the Vienna Philharmonic joins the artists in the clarinet trio.
