Tickets will remain in cart for 30 minutes.
Coming off last year’s Grammy win for Best Classical Instrumental Solo in the Dutilleux Violin Concerto, Augustin Hadelich returns to the intimacy of Harris Concert Hall for a varied chamber music program. Praised by the Los Angeles Times for his “silvery tone [and] pinpoint intonation,” Hadelich has dazzled Aspen audiences each summer he has returned, and this summer he is joined by other extraordinary talents.
One of Haydn’s last piano trios opens the program, a charming and extroverted work much loved by his London audiences. Kodály traveled around Hungary with Bartók to collect folksongs, and the next work, his Duo for Violin and Cello, bears the influence of one such trip. Takemitsu’s beautifully lyrical trio Between Tides has elements of both Debussy and Duke Ellington. Brahms’s dramatic and powerful late final Piano Trio belies the idyllic surroundings of Switzerland’s Lake Thun where it was composed.
