Brahms & Tchaikovsky: The Great Adversaries

featuring pianist Kazimierz Brzozowski, violinist Marian Tanau,
and cellist Jeremy Crosmer

Sunday, April 10th @ 2:00 PM

This concert is made possible with generous support from Salon Series Genre Underwriters,
Maurice & Linda Binkow.

KCH’s Salon Series celebrates classical music in an intimate setting that is reminiscent of the 19th century style salon or parlour concerts – a concert style which would have been entirely familiar to composers like Schubert, Schumann, Chopin and Liszt, and which offers audiences an opportunity to experience world-class chamber music in a living room setting.

This program features two great piano trios by these late 19th century composers: Tchaikovsky’s Trio in A Minor, Op. 50 and Brahms’ Trio in C Minor, Op. 101. Although Brahms and Tchaikovsky shared a birthday on May 7th (Brahms being seven years older, born in 1833), they stand on opposite poles of the composing spectrum. Brahms was the great classicist, building his works with intricate musical logic; Tchaikovsky was the heart-on-his-sleeve emotionalist, as colorful as Brahms was sober.
