5/6/21 Emmanuel Church, Didsbury – 11am
Two more of Beethoven’s chamber works flank a late piano trio by Mozart. We begin with Ludwig’s Variations for ‘cello and piano, WoO46, on a theme from Mozart’s Magic Flute: ‘Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen’. This is sung by Papageno lamenting his inability to get himself a date!! Beethoven’s variations on this famous tune date from 1801 when the melody itself was only ten years old! Next is a little jewel of Beethoveniana, the perfect trio movement in Bb written in 1812 as a present for a ten year old girl; Maximiliane Brentano, daughter of the lady who may have been Beethoven’s ‘Immortal Beloved’….if that’s the case, no wonder the music is so tender and special… We finish with Mozart’s late piano trio in G major, K. 564 from 1788. This charming work is Mozart’s last offering in the genre, it’s simplicity belying its maturity, but underlining its genius.
