The New York Classical Players and The Library for the Performing Arts offer another afternoon of Beethoven chamber music and conversation. In addition to a rare performance of Beethoven’s own trio arrangement of his Second Symphony, this final Beethoven Encounters program focuses on the monumental Piano Trio in B flat major, Op. 97 - the “Archduke.” See the Library’s treasured manuscript for this Beethoven masterwork. Hear virtuosic and thoughtfully prepared performances from some of New York’s most gifted young musicians, and learn how performers make choices as an ensemble, enliven music that is centuries old, and, using horsehair, steel, and wood, create sounds that invigorate and move us.
