This concert allows us to marvel at the various images and periods of Romanticism, ably guided by Ilona Prunyi and her superb string partners Vilmos Oláh and László Fenyő. In Mendelssohn's lively D major cello-piano sonata, composed in 1842, in addition to the flowing melodies and expressive lyricism, a clear, classical editing mode is observable, and the chorale of the slow movement recalls the composer’s role model, Bach. Tchaikovsky's short piano works are masterpieces of mature Romanticism, each giving a glimpse into a separate emotional world. Finally, the piano trio (1908) by Christian Sinding (1845–1941) promises to be a true treat – the Norwegian-born composer studied in Leipzig, at the Conservatory founded by Mendelssohn himself, and he spent the majority of his life in Germany. His style, which is truly unique, is rooted primarily in the music of Wagner and Liszt and perhaps it stands closest to Richard Strauss, the great master of late Romanticism.
