West Coast Chamber Music's second concert of the season will span three centuries beginning in the 18th with one of Mozart's finest trios, his Piano Trio in C major, K 548. It's a work both poised and refined, yet embedded with musical ideas of weight and power. WCCM will be delighted to perform Old Photographs, a piano trio of the 21st Century by Canadian composer, Christos Hatzis, an evocative work featuring a variety of styles from impressionistic to romantic to jazz. We'll finish by travelling back into the 19th Century and hearing Antonin Dvorak's glorious Piano Quartet in E flat major, Op. 87 with its long lines and fulsome textures.
