Haydn Trio No 4 in F Hob XV39 in F Scherzo Played by Beatrice Cazals, Alice Sophie and Juan Jose Rezzuto
It was a big pleasure to perform along with Alice Sophie -cello- and Bea Cazals -violin-. This entertaining Scherzo is rarely played and is a good example of XVIII century court music. Haydn was an expert composer of quality social pieces. We can easily imagine a classical music soiree happening around a trio performing this wonderfully elegant trio.
Compositionally speaking, this piece is both formally and syntactically simple. But then, it is there where beauty lays. There is nothing harder than achieving such a wonderful result with so very little. The entire piece works as a development of its first musical phrase. The clearest goal: entertain. It was very usual, in Haydn’s time, to finish a complex trio, like the one this episode belongs to, with an uplifting climatic number. It allows all performers to show off their technical skills while its musicality is simple for audience to understand and enjoy.
Arts Club 1901 is again the venue of choice for our next London Music Festival. We have a date scheduled for February 18th 2017. Very soon we will start with the preparations. Our students are already working towards performing and we are expecting even a greater success than on our busy 4th edition; we are currently running our 5th edition... It is with great joy that we see this wonderful event growing and developing into popular classical occurrence within London musical events.
Although it was born as a members-exclusive event now we are also opened to welcome people from other musical organizations. If you are interested in joining us on our next festival, please make sure you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience so we can offer you more slot options.
