    Hmm, I knew the K292 number didn't look familiar. I checked on my set of Mozart Piano Trios, and this wasn't on there.

    Upon further investigation, I discovered this K292 was a work originally transcribed for Bassoon and Cello, or for 2 Bassoons. Interesting.

    Last night was my first attendance to a chamber music concert. It was absolutely fantastic!

    Live chamber music is such a wonderful experience. It was very interesting to see the interaction among the musicians.

    Looking forward to the next one in November.

    Concert 2: November 4, 2007

    Dohnanyi - String Trio Serenade in C major, Op. 10
    Ravel - Violin Sonata
    Mozart - String Quartet in D major, K.499

    Wonderful music last night!

    3 very different works from each other. The most pleasant surprise of the night was the opener, Dohnanyi's String Trio Serenade in C major, op. 10 I like this work A LOT! A 5 mvt. work, I loved the Romanza 2nd mvt. and the Tema con variazoni 4th mvt. in particular.

    Ravel's Violin Sonata was quite different than what one might hear in a more "traditional" violin sonata. It had some bluesy, jazzy elements in it. I loved the piano in this sonata. And I discovered that Ravel used bi-tonality in this sonata. I definitely need to listen to it again before I would make a judgment on whether I truly enjoy this piece or not.

    I had not heard Mozart's String Quartet in D major, K. 499, aka the Hoffmeister quartet. What can I say, it was wonderful! Typical Mozart in that all the parts seem to fit together in perfect harmony. I particularly enjoyed the 2nd mvt. Menuetto and the final mvt. Allegro.

    Glad you enjoyed the evening.

    I haven't heard anything by Dohnanyi beyond those variations (which also happens to include the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star'). Yet another work to add to the Listen To list.
