Beethoven and Rachmaninoff

Within this concert, the group performs two repertoires of the two great composers, i.e.

The concert initiates with a speech from Asep Hidayat as a chief organizer, then the music begins with Beethoven’s Piano Trio no. 1 Op. 70.

This is a work with a decisive opening followed by a theme that is more legatto. The theme developed diligently by the composer which theme followed by varying scales of development.

Musical Communication within Chamber Music Performance

Rachmaninoff`s Trio Élégiaque no.1 seems more complex in terms of compositional technique and its expression if compare with the previous piece. These symptoms characterized at least by the appearance of multiple contrasting moments, modulation, and another kind of development.

But in addition, Rachmaninoff is still keeping with the traditional idea about how a musical composition for chamber performance should be done, particularly with an emphasis on communication intimacy between individual voices.

Not so long after hearing some segments, we will become aware if there are so many moments of musical dialogue, especially between violin and cello, interspersed with a piano that switches its function as an accompaniment to solo.

All of this musical journey is well executed by Song Hong Chamber Music while the intense communication fills in between each individual voice.
