    Program

    Consisting of Daniel Ligorio, Juan Luis Gallego and David Apellániz—three soloists of ‎international prestige—the Trio Arriaga is one of the most compelling national chamber music ‎ensembles today and at the forefront of a resurgence of the trio with piano in Catalonia, as ‎confirmed by the emergence of the young Trio Pedrell and Trio Fortuny ensembles. In their ‎concert at L’Auditori, the Trio Arriaga will offer us two great works from the chamber music ‎repertoire that are related by both the nationality of their composers and their elegiac nature. ‎Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote the Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50 in 1882 in ‎memory of his friend and mentor Nikolai Rubinstein, who had died the previous year. ‎Shostakovich’s trio was written in 1944, under the weight of the years of war he had ‎experienced and the effects of the death of his beloved friend Ivan Sollertinsky, to whom he ‎dedicated the Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67. Despite having a common ‎source of inspiration, both works express the despondency provoked by death from ‎different perspectives: Tchaikovsky’s is tinged with an overwhelming romantic ‎sentimentalism, whilst Shostakovich transports us to his world of extreme contrasts, through ‎which he expresses the suffering and horror of a humanity able to carry out the greatest of ‎atrocities.‎
