Agora Trio presents lesser-known early works of four well-known composers.
For Art Base, they have created a two-part program adding also some more
well-known works to provide perspective on and context for their musical
Beethoven wrote his iconic Gassenhauer Trio at the age of 27 with the
flexible instrumentation that allowed the newly emerging clarinet or the
violin to take the higher melodic line. With this in mind, we allowed
ourselves to choose from a wide spectrum of trios, without limiting our
repertoire to original compositions for clarinet-cello-piano.
We took the idea of allowing room for experimentation as a starting point,
and created a pairing of youthful works designed to re-contextualize,
enrich, and even surprise our listeners. Each composer’s journey was
unique, but the common thread is that all four worked within the musical
fabric he had absorbed as a child, and sought to establish a new path for
himself as an adult.
This idea of searching liberated and challenged us to find new ways to
adapt the music to our ensemble. With our debut CD, we set out to
re-envision youthful classics, and bring lesser-known works to the stage.
