Dante Summer Festival: Cornwall
23 August | 6:00 pm
Linos Piano Trio, Alinka Rowe (viola), Eliza Millet (cello)
First we hear a contemporary and highly approachable duet composed by virtuoso violist Garth Knox, full of folk rhythms and quirky harmonies. Then another of Beethoven’s most celebrated works, dedicated to his great friend and patron Archduke Rudolph of Austria. Although Beethoven gave the first performance of the trio, his encroaching deafness prevented him from ever playing the piano in public again. The music, sunny and majestic in tone, betrays nothing of his struggle with this devastating illness.
