Merz Trio, winners of the Naumburg, Concert Artists Guild, Fischoff, and Chesapeake Competitions, present a program of 19th and early 20th-century masterworks teeming with boundary-breaking energy. Beethoven’s middle period masterwork, Op. 70 No. 2, is paired here with four later Viennese songs that draw attention to both its lyrical and virtuosic elements, while Brahms’ B Major Trio, composed when he was only 21 but revised in later years, showcases him as both a pioneering romantic and as a consummate master at the height of his powers. Ravel’s La Valse rounds out this program with its blend of joy and dark nostalgia.
