A romantic Sunday with Beethoven and Schumann
Beethoven’s Trio in B-flat Opus 11 is clear/crisp/Mozartean, but by this time Beethoven was definitely getting a reputation, so one begins hear the sort of confidence and ballsiness of his middle period creep in. The slow movement is beautiful, and the last movement is a really fun set of variations on a popular street tune of the time, "Pria ch'io l'impegno" (Before I go to work).
Schumann’s “Fantasy Pieces” is an incredibly popular recital piece, and versions exist for clarinet, violin and cello in the composers pen. Fantasy in this instance embodies the concept that art originates from the creators subconscious as an act of self-expression, a position regarding art that sums up the romantic artists position towards their work. Initially entitled "night pieces", the three short songs are wonderfully evocative of inner-moods.
