This concert gives us the opportunity to hear a brace of exciting, large-scale chamber works by two composers who enjoyed the relationship of master and pupil. Always capable of reinventing himself, Haydn wrote the trio featured here – subtitled in one of his manuscripts as Jacob’s Dream – at the age off 63 in 1795.
As one of his later works, it is far removed in tone – and in its two-movement structure – from the clean formal world of the Viennese classics. Beethoven’s Trio in B-flat major, completed some 15 years later, is a work on a symphonic scale which the composer wrote for his patron and student Archduke Rudolf of Austria.
The work is considered one of the peaks of chamber music, and the three young musicians of the Van Baerle Trio, whose combined age amounts to only 84 years, possess every means necessary to conquer such peaks. With multiple competition victories already behind them, the trio’s members can also boast outstanding achievements as individuals, while counting Menahem Pressler, pianist of the legendary Beaux Arts Trio, as their mentor.
The trio has been chosen by the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO) among the six young musicians and ensembles to be presented to the public in the most prestigious concert venues in Europe in the 2013/14 season under the aegis of the Rising Stars programme.
The year 2012 represented a milestone in the short but already highly successful shared career of the members of the Van Baerle Trio, as it saw them complete their first recording and win a grant of €50,000 from the Dutch Kersjes Foundation.
