Five consummate musicians perform diverse gems from the 19th century. Duos and trios fill the first half with enchantment and surprise with Beethoven’s variations on Mozart’s melody, Schubert’s creation for the arpeggione (an instrument that no longer exists), and Bottesini’s virtuoso showpiece for violin and double bass. The artists join forces after intermission to perform Schubert’s ”Trout Quintet”, which has garnered a reputation as one of the most popular works in the chamber repertory.
