About the Program...
Featuring Tchaikovsky’s great elegiac Trio, “in memory of a great artist,” as well as Fauré’s Trio written near the end of the composer’s live, the program also gathers around it a community of smaller works ranging from Nicola Matteis to Édith Piaf, Alma Mahler to Irish traditional tunes, all exploring a similar question of what it means to see life through a lens, rose-colored or otherwise.
