Hamilton/Brahms on the Radio
The Trio in B Major by Brahms is marked Opus 8, but it was edited and shortened by Brahms later in his life, which resulted in a vastly improved masterpiece. The opening cello melody is one of the most gorgeous creations in all of music. KQAC, allclassical.org, will broadcast a performance of the Florestan Trio playing the Trio in B Major on “Played in Oregon” on Sunday, July 11 at 1pm, Pacific Daylight Time. The Florestan Trio is Janet Guggenheim, Carol Sindell and me, and I can’t wait to make music again with these amazing women. Carol and I have been in a trio together for 47 years. The Brahms performance will be available for two weeks after the broadcast in the Audio Archive on allclassical.org and may be heard anywhere in the world.
