Beethoven Piano Trio in B flat, Op.11 ‘Gassenhauer’
Enescu Sérénade lointaine
Brahms Piano Trio No.1 in B, Op.8

As days shorten and winter draws in, the Amatis Piano Trio returns for a Sunday afternoon concert which opens with Beethoven’s bright and congenial Op.11 trio originally scored for clarinet but for this programmed performed in the version for violin, clarinet and piano. 

The theme and variations of the finale is based on a popular aria so well known in Viennese streets that it earned the nickname ‘Gassenhauer’. George Enescu’s music deserves more regular performances, his attractive Sérénade lointaine composed in 1903 was only discovered in 2004. The programme is completed with the first chamber work Brahms published, at the age of 21, but revised 35 years later as a mature composer.
