November 13-15, 2020
Hear all seven of Beethoven’s groundbreaking trios in two concerts in a weekend mini-festival! From the inventiveness of Opus 1 (his first published works!), to the atmospheric “Ghost,” to the dramatic and stately “Archduke,” the trios offer a portrait of Beethoven’s masterful vision for the combination of violin, cello, and piano. The Berlin-based ATOS Trio has been on our wish list for many years, and this is the perfect opportunity to hear them in Tulsa.

The ATOS Trio offers three captivating pieces, each with a distinctive musical identity. Chaminade’s trio is a powerful work of sweeping, Romantic character, but it was ignored for nearly a century because the composer was a woman. In Mozart’s trio, an overall cheerful disposition prevails despite episodes of dark and moody harmonies. Cassadó creates a Spanish fantasia filled with harmonies and rhythms that echo those of flamenco guitars.
