Opus 1, No. 1

March 30, 2022
Performers: Peter Allen, piano; Leonardo Perez, violin; Shimon Walt, cello; Elizabeth Upson Perez, viola
Aptly named “Opus 1, No.1," this concert features Beethoven’s and Brahms's first contributions into two chamber music genres they have become celebrated for – the piano trio and the piano quartet. This concert will feature Beethoven’s glorious and uplifting Piano Trio No. 1 in E-Flat major, Op. 1, followed by Brahms’s stormy and beautiful Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25.
