Music of Mozart, Beethoven and Shostakovich performed by the Triptych Piano Trio – Thomas Annand – Piano, Laura Nerenberg – violin and Daniel Parker – cello.
Boy Geniuses: Music of a young Beethoven (Op. 1 #1), of an “old” Mozart (though, Mozart was never really old!) and music by a troubled, middle-aged Shostakovich. Shostakovich’s Trio Op. 67 was composed during WWII, and its last movement comments on the tragic fate of Jewish prisoners at the ruthless Treblinka concentration camp. It is a dark, stark and compelling reaction to the atrocities committed against the Jewish people.
