On the program: Mozart's trio, whose luminosity recalls his great concertos, to be performed alongside Haydn's Gypsy, as acclaimed as his great string quartets.

Bridging classicism and romanticism, these works by Schubert move us with their surges of lyricism and poignant colors. The melody of the Notturno, where the sounds of the violin and cello intertwine in a deep love song, expresses the quintessence of Schubert's art. His Trio No. 2, both radiant and tinged with dark passions, demonstrates all his creative complexity. In contrast to his tragically short life, his melodies remain with us long after we hear them!
