Shostakovich Piano Trio No. 2 in E major, Op. 67
Schubert Cello Quintet in C major, D. 956

At age 31, Franz Schubert was frantically composing while his health deteriorated and the reality set in that he was dying. His heavenly Cello Quintet in C major is revered by musicians for its melodic brilliance and rare emotional maturity. Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his second piano trio during one of the darkest moments of World War II, when Hitler's army surrounded Leningrad and survival became uncertain for millions of Russians.

Join the artists for a post-concert question & answer session immediately following the performance.
