Family and connection is a common thread woven through the program, from Dvořák’s Songs My Mother Taught Me to Suk’s Elegy from Opus 23, composed to honour his friend and collaborator, Czech writer Julius Zeyer.
The second half of the concert comprises Mendelssohn’s D minor piano trio; his contemporary, Robert Schumann, declared it would stand the test of time and bring joy to generations. Virtuosic and emotive, this heartfelt masterwork is the perfect conclusion to an intimate and deeply human program.
