Chamber music! What does that mean, anyway? Think of music performed by small
ensembles in 18th century settings, small rooms, living rooms, large dining rooms, or ball
rooms. Those are chambers, hence the name “chamber music”. Since the retirement of
founding violinist Ferdinand Liva, members of the DaPonte String Quartet have taken the
wonderful opportunity to present a program Duo and Trio literture in an intimate and engaging
setting. The Beethoven C minor Trio, the Ernö Dohnányi Serenade, and the Mozart Duo in B
flat comprise the works on the program and represent three jewels of the chamber music
The Beethoven, written at the height of his first compositional period, exemplifies his
early mastery of the genre. Written in 1902, Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio is packed with
dramatic twists and turns. If you’ve not heard the Hungarian composer’s work, you are in for
smiles, surprises, and sense of wonder. Mozart’s B flat Duo, K424 was originally presented as
part of a set of works by Michael Haydn, the younger brother of Franz Joseph. Mozart’s genius
would not remain disguised though, as his “obvious workmanship” shone brightly.
