For the final concert of season 9 Trio Arkel explores three different evocative pieces of music.
Haydn composed several piano trios but string trios were rare. For his String Trio, the listener will be surprised and delighted by this colourful and vibrant work.
We contrast that with Caplet’s Conte fantastique, inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s Masque of the Red Death. This gothic piece is full of harmonics and glissandos that conjure an uneasy spectre of doom for the listener as we follow the story of Prince Prospero and his masked ball during the time of a devastating plague.
Listeners will then be treated to Ravel’s String Quartet, which has a rich luxurious sound that juxtaposes formality and sensuality to give the allusion of a much fuller string section beyond the quartet. The String Quartet demonstrates Ravel’s sense of freedom to be bold and spontaneous in his compositions.
