Beethoven’s Piano Trios III

In the framework of the series Beethoven’s Piano Trios dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven’s work, Mari Poll (violin), Henry-David Varema (cello) and Mihkel Poll (piano) will bring to the audience all the works written by the composer in this genre. The concert will take place at the Chamber Hall of Viimsi ARTIUM

The last concert of the series will feature:

Trio in E flat major op. cit. 1 No 1 (1794/95)

Variations in G major on a Theme Ich bin der Schneider Kakadu (Trio No. 11), Op. 121a (1816)

Trio in B major op. cit.97 (“Archduke”) (1811)

The piano trio was a beloved chamber genre in Vienna in the second half of the 18th century, cultivated in abundance in domestic ensemble playing, both in the middle class and in the circle of aristocrats. An important role in the formation of the genre was played by Joseph Haydn, whose trios later also became an example for Beethoven. Beethoven’s contribution to the development of the piano trio, however, was significant – under his guidance there was a noticeable expansion of the genre and the trio developed into a weighty instrumental cycle.

Mari Poll, Henry-David Varema and Mihkel Poll are internationally renowned performers who have given concerts in many world-famous concert halls. They have been performing as a trio since 2013. The ensemble’s repertoire includes a wide range of music from Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms to works by contemporary composers. Estonian compositions occupy a special place in the trio’s repertoire, including works by classics such as Artur Lemba and Heino Eller, as well as the works by contemporary composers – Erkki-Sven Tüür, Arvo Pärt and Riho Esko Maimets. Since the end of 2022, the trio’s focus has been on the compositions by Beethoven, and they have presented all his piano trios to the audience.
