Beethoven, Ravel and Brahms
November 16 at 6pm
Brahms’ Horn Trio is a hauntingly beautiful blend of elegy, nostalgia and vigor. Written during a stay in the Black Forest, inspired by his daily walks in the woods, the slow movement of this trio is an elegy for his mother. The unusual instrumentation of the horn is a tribute to his childhood where both the young Brahms and his father played the horn. Celebrated horn virtuoso Radovan Vlatković makes his String Theory debut in this monumental work, and is joined by acclaimed violinist Soovin Kim and Artistic Director Gloria Chien.
