ATTRACTING OPPOSITES is out!
Rawlins Piano Trio performed "What Makes it Great?"at the National Music Museum!
On Thursday and Friday, November 21-22, we were thrilled to perform Beethoven Trio in B-flat, Op. 97, "Archduke" at the National Music Museum on an 1876 Broadwood piano from the Museum's collection. While this instrument dates from a time later than Beethoven's time of composition of this trio (1793-94), it still has a sweeter and lighter sound than modern grand pianos. Those performing Beethoven's works nearly a hundred years later than their composition might have used such an instrument.
These concerts were a special part of the National Music Museum's 40th anniversary celebration. Special commentary about the "Archduke" Trio was presented by the esteemed and entertaining host of NPR's What Makes it Great? show , Rob Kapilow. "In this performance, Rob Kapilow and The Rawlins Trio contemplate, disassemble, and unlock the mysteries of that crowning achievement of Beethoven’s cycle of piano trios, his Trio in B-flat Major, Opus 97, known as the “The Archduke Trio.” A monumental achievement considered by most to be the greatest work for its instrumentation, “The Archduke” is known for its noble grandeur and its hauntingly beautiful Andante movement. With his gift for finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, Rob Kapilow will let his audience peer into the inner workings of this magnificent masterpiece."
