The string trio is an incredible combination, even more fast-paced and dynamic than a string quartet. Boccherini, Beethoven, and Kurtág each created amazing music for the string trio, which we'll enjoy together with a delightful duo by Mozart and a quick cello solo by Berio.

Luigi Boccherini | String Trio, op. 47

György Kurtág | “signs, games, and messages” for string trio
