The Vancouver Chamber Players

present TREASURES OF CHAMBER MUSIC
Members $30 Non-Members $35 (no tax)
For their next concert, the Vancouver Chamber Players present pianist Lixia Li, violinist Christine Choi, and cellist Lee Duckles in a performance of Clara Schumann’s Trio in g minor and Johannes Brahms’s Trio in C major.
Composed in 1846, the Piano Trio by Clara Schumann is considered her greatest, most mature four-movement work. It is her only piano trio, composed at age 25 while she lived in Dresden. Clara herself found great joy in composing the chamber work, her Opus17. At the first rehearsal of the trio with a violinist and cellist, she wrote in her diary, “There is nothing greater than the joy of composing something oneself, and then listening to it.
Johannes Brahms composed his Piano Trio No. 2 in C Major, Op. 87, between 1880 and 1882. The self-critical Brahms held this trio in high regard, writing to his publisher that they had “not yet had such a beautiful trio from me and very likely have not published its equal in the last ten years.”
