The Eggner Trio showcased a veritable collection of the best chamber music acts from three romantic periods on Wednesday at “Garden Hall” in St. The third concert in the “classic at its best” cycle of the famous piano trio was, so to speak, a “home match” by brothers Christophe (piano), George (violin) and Florian (cello), who had grown up in Saint Florian.
The well-attended evening began with Clara Schumann’s very romantic Piano Trio op.17 from 1846, which reflects intense emotions. The strong grip of the three musicians was evidently due to the emotional turmoil expressed in this masterpiece.
Brahms’ trio in C minor from 1886, which can be considered the late quintessence of the three piano trios, also seemed compact and thus work-loyal. As elegantly as the Eggners coined the middle movements, they actually made the Allegro Energico and Allegro molto rhythm marks dynamic in the outer movements. The break gave the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the monastery garden with an enchanting view of the stone Alps, so to speak, the calm before the storm.
This erupted in unison at the start of Franz Schubert’s Trio in E flat major (Ref. 100, 1827), for increasingly controlling in length (53 minutes!) for the remarkable work in contrast to the middle-cardiac movements.
It may be due to the grandiose acoustics of the hall or the enthusiasm: the dynamics of the composition, which was played in the original rarely used version, has been changed. Forte got lucky or more and threatened to cover the sound structure with a storm, farewell to ingenuity!
Nevertheless, the audience was completely pleased: a standing ovation and a really cool appearance with Scherzo from Mendelssohn’s Trio in D min.
