NSO lecture Concert: Chamber Music in Romantic Period 1 浪漫時期經典室內樂(一) will be on stage at Recital Hall, National Chiang Kai Shek Cultural Center 國立中正文化中心 (No.21-1, Zhongshan S. Rd., Zhongzheng District, Taipei 台北市中山南路21-1 號; Tel: 02-3393-9999) at 7:30 p.m. January 11.Most of the time, chamber music is performed without the guidance of a conductor. It relies on the full cooperation among the performers to drive music smoothly forward. This kind of consensus in performing is one of the charismata of chamber music. After the successful “Chamber Music in Classical Period” series, NSO continues to produce the “Chamber Music in Romantic Period,” which is still privileged to have Dr. Chu-Wey Liu as the lecturer. The Romantic period, which accedes to the elegance and sophistication of the Classical period, adds the elements of imagination, pathos, and humor into music. In this concert, Dr. Liu will analyze selections from the masterpieces written by Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Schubert, three of the most prominent composers from the Romantic period. BRAHMS: Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 2, Op. 100, 1st Mov. TCHAIKOVSKY: Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50, 2nd Mov. SCHUBERT: String Quartet Death and the Maiden, 2nd Mov.
