For Three: Trios by Paganini and Beethoven
Monday, June 27, 2016
Tune in Monday at 10 pm to hear a pair of trios performed by members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. WQXR's Elliott Forrest hosts the program with additional commentary by CMS co-artistic director David Finckel.
This week's episode features an unconventional string trio for viola, guitar and cello by Paganini, written in 1833. Though known primarily as a violinist, Paganini also played the other two instruments. It is followed by Beethoven's Serenade for flute, violin and viola, which was composed in 1795–96.
