A Bit of Haydn

March 28th: evening with trios by Haydn and Beethoven at the Romanian Athenaeum; a way to explore the development of the musical form of variations.

Musical variations are, in their first sense, a compositional technique; in Haydn's trios they can be found also as a musical form in its own right, while in Beethoven's trios they are treated independently, as a musical genre.

I offer here just a little bit of Haydn: the First Movement of the Piano Trio in C major Hob. XV:27; a concert that took place at the Moscow Kremlin in 2009, with Dmitri Vinnik (piano), Sviatoslav Moroz (violin), and Natalia Gutman (cello).
