Horn trio prelude Schumann
Album für die Jugend, Op. 68 4. Chorale
Schumann Fantasiestücke, Op. 73,

Prokofiev Violin sonata No. 1 in f, Op. 80
Brahms Horn trio in Eb, Op. 40
A to-die-for trio of superlative musicians will bring us one of the most satisfying programs we could wish for.
Between them, Schumann and Brahms defined the Romantic. No instrument proclaims this more powerfully than the French horn, especially in Brahms' beloved Horn Trio. By the same token, no "modern" spoke more persuasively of his time than did Prokofiev. His just-pre-war 1st violin sonata recounts an irresistibly gripping tale that's relevant now.
Our three – Ivakhiv, Purvis, Lee – will counter January's deep chill with a warmth that, we promise you, will stay with us all for a great while.
