{{ message.content }}

The 33rd season of the Spectrum Concerts Berlin gets underway in the Jesus-Christus Church in Dahlem with Dmitri Shostakovich's piano trios. The first, in C minor, is an early work, with plaintive melodies and a stormy energy at its core. Nineteen years passed before Shostakovich composed the Piano Trio no. 2 in E minor, dedicated to the music and literature expert Ivan Sollertinsky, who had just died unexpectedly at the age of 41. In the music, you can hear Shostakovich's shock: "I cannot capture in words the sorrow I felt on learning of Ivan Ivanovich's death. He was my best and closest friend. I owe my entire advancement to him. Living without him will be intolerably difficult...". Featuring Eldar Nebolsin (piano), Clara-Jumi Kang (violin) und Jens Peter Maintz (violoncello).
