ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

Welcome toIn Concert With CMS .

I'm Paula Zahn, and today we're

celebrating two 20th century

Russian masters with the Chamber

Music Society of Lincoln Center.

We'll open our program with

Sergei Prokofiev's "Second

Violin Sonata in D Major."

This lovely four movement work

is a great example of classical

chamber music and features a

lyrical conversation between

violin and piano.

We follow that up with a

different flavor of Russian

chamber music: the passionate

and ironic "Piano Trio in E

minor" of Dmitri Shostakovich.

Dedicated to the composer's late

friend Ivan Sollertinsky, this

elegiac composition covers a

large expanse of emotional and

musical ground.

We hope you enjoy!
