HAYDN Piano Trio no.31 in E flat minor Jacob's Dream
SCHOENBERG Transfigured Night (arr. Steuermann)
MENDELSSOHN Piano Trio in D minor, Op.49
The title of Huxley's essay 'Music at Night' captures the somnambulistic and the fantastic: the program begins with Haydn's Trio No.31, nicknamed Jacob's Dream. Written on the cusp of the 20th century, Transfigured Night is an epic tone-poem drawing listeners into Schoenberg's psychological labyrinth. As a finale, Firebird Trio performs the passionate Piano Trio in D minor by the musical creator of midsummer nights, Felix Mendelssohn.
