Attila Falvay, Máté Szűcs & Péter Somodari Presented by Liszt Academy

J. S. Bach: Goldberg Variations, BWV 988
Mozart: Divertimento in E-flat major, K. 563

Attila Falvay (violin), Máté Szűcs (viola), Péter Somodari (cello)

Whereas over the centuries the string quartet became a chamber music genre ‘par excellence’, its ‘little brother’, the string trio, was given only episodic leading roles. One of these is Mozart’s E-flat major divertimento (1789) penned at the same time as his final three symphonies. Going by the title this should be light, entertaining music, although in truth it is major work of symphonic dimension, in which every instrument is given an equal role. With the exception of several unfinished works, Mozart did not write any other piece for string trio, although there exist several Bach works in this arrangement. These transcriptions inspired Dmitry Sitkovetsky to prepare his adaptation (performed in the first half of the concert) on one of Bach’s most famous works. The programme is brought to life in the interpretation of three artists experienced and highly sought after both at home and abroad on the chamber music scene. Attila Falvay plays on the ‘Hamma’ violin (1731) made by Antonio Stradivari and in the ownership of the Hungarian state.
