The UW-Whitewater Piano Trio’s concert will feature two contrasting Romantic works. Robert Schumann’s
Piano Trio No. 2, while set in traditional German musical forms, is remarkable for its adventurous harmonic surprises. The Piano
Trio Op.3 by the French composer Ernst Chausson is from a very
different musical world: a serious, even brooding work that shows the influence of his
teacher César Franck.
