My friends are those who haunt the Ideal; there, dear friend, we 'recognize' each other, and shall always do so…

Auer Trio Presented by Liszt Academy

Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 7 in B-flat major, Op. 97 (ʻArchdukeʼ)
Dvořák: Piano Trio No. 4 in e minor, Op. 90 (‘Dumky’)

Auer Trio: Péter Kováts (violin), István Varga (cello), Balázs Fülei (piano)

Auer Trio were founded in 2016 by three teachers of the Liszt Academy: pianist Balázs Fülei, violinist Péter Kováts and cellist István Varga. The ensemble take their name from Lipót Auer (1845–1930) and they debuted in front of the general public at the Auer Festival, Veszprém. The trio’s first CD, Triography, comprising works by Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, was recently released. It received a warm welcome from critics who noted the stylistic confidence of the performance method, the broad spectrum of tones and the self-evident naturalness of the playing. At the premiere of the B major trio dedicated to Archduke Rudolf, Beethoven himself played the piano, although (and this is confirmed by several contemporary reports) his playing was seriously impeded by the decline in his hearing. The premiere of the other work similarly saw the composer at the piano: the composition was a huge success and not long after Dvořák undertook to play the keyboard part on a tour comprising 40 concerts.

 

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
