Terrific Trios

September 28, 2022
7:30 PM | Convocation Hall

Robert Uchida (violin), Rafael Hoekman (cello), Roger Admiral (piano)

  • Brahms, Trio in B Major Opus 8
  • Beethoven, Ghost Trio Opus 70
  • Matthew Ricketts, Still There (2020)

Edmonton Symphony Orchestra’s concertmaster Robert Uchida and principal cellist Rafael Hoekman join with pianist Roger Admiral to present ever-popular trios by Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. Beethoven’s “Ghost” trio was given its nickname for an ominous slow movement which features material originally meant for an opera based on Shakespeare’s play Macbeth. Brahms’ Op. 8 trio could also be called Op. 108 as it combines the energy and abundance of ideas of the young inventive composer with the revised taut structure of a mature composer reflecting on his intertwined relationships with Robert and Clara Schumann. Also on the program, Canadian composer Matthew Ricketts’ Still There won first prize in the Graham Sommer Competition for new piano trios in 2021, and features hushed animated discussion particular to the conversational nature of instrumental chamber music.

This concert is a part of the Department of Music's 2022-2023 Faculty & Friends Series.
