    Concert Season: Haydn, Kurtág, Ligeti, Dohnányi

    Presented by at Sanders Theatre

    March 13, 2011


    Concert Season: Haydn, Kurtág, Ligeti, Dohnányi

    The “Gypsy” Trio gets its nickname from its Finale that shows the flavor of gypsy and Hungarian folk music Haydn was drawn to during his long employment at Esterháza. In the Hommage a R. Sch., for Clarinet, Viola and Piano, Kurtág adopts the same personae as Schumann’s pieces, and creates a string of evocative miniatures that recreate the Schummannesque spirit in contemporary terms. Composed in a new style neither modern nor postmodern, Ligeti’s Trio explores the use of major and minor harmonies without the syntax of common practice tonality. The Dohnányi Sextet, for the unusual combination of clarinet, horn, string trio, and piano, has four very Brahmsian movements but with idiosyncratic twists. Sly wit and boisterous fun are key parts of this music.
