The Art of the Piano Trio: Music of Schobert, Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven

Portland Early Music Festival presents The Berry Collective

The Berry Collective explores the rise of this beloved form of chamber music in its many facets. Music for “accompanied keyboard” was all the rage in musical capitals across Europe in the 18th century as an increasing number of women learned to play the newly-popular fortepiano. A burst of piano building and music publishing helped create an environment in which chamber music flourished, and enterprising composers needed to provide an ever-constant stream of works to satisfy these players. Schobert, active in Paris in the 1760’s, was an early master of the genre who influenced Haydn and the young Mozart, who in turn served as beacons for Beethoven. This music really comes alive on the period instruments for which they were written, where balance issues vanish and clarity, fleetness, and intimacy reign.

Ars Antiqua presents: Eszterháza to London - Music & Remembrances from Haydn’s Travel Diaries

(Followed by a Buffet of English Cheeses & Sparkling Wine)

Franz Joseph Haydn’s colorful diaries recount the challenges of traveling from Eszterháza to London and the sensation that ensued upon his arrival in England in 1791. “The sea crossing was terrible and the journey to London was even worse.” On this journey, he had met with Beethoven in Bonn and once Haydn arrived in London he was warmly welcomed as a celebrity. In an era when music for private salon concerts was very stylish, Haydn’s piano trios had tremendous appeal. Although the venues might have been small, the piano writing in the trios is wide-ranging and full of virtuosity, surprises and humor. In London, Haydn became inspired by instruments of English manufacture, particularly the pianos of John Broadwood which are ideally suited for his music. Music of Haydn and Beethoven.

The Sounds of Haydn's London

Toward the end of an already fruitful and renowned career, Haydn made two trips to London that yielded some of his greatest works. He was greatly inspired by three women he befriended - two pianists and a poet - and wrote fantastic music for all of them. He also met the famous piano builder John Broadwood whose instruments were quite novel for him, and this concert will feature a Broadwood and Son grand built in 1806. Don't miss your chance to hear the sounds of Haydn's London on period instruments!

Duo Vis-a-Vis: Works by Three Bach Sons for Two Keyboards

Sylvia Berry and harpsichordist Leon Schelhase and  have performed various works for two keyboards over the past decade. The name of their duo derives from the instruments built by Johann Andreas Stein that housed both a harpsichord and a fortepiano in one case. This program features works by W.F., C.P.E., and J.C. Bach, who are all clearly influenced by J.S. and yet forged their own very different paths. Playing their works for two keyboards on mixed instruments, which was not an unusual practice, reveals the independence of the two voices and revives a practice that was probably more widespread than we think.  They will perform together on the new Ravensong Historic Keyboard Series in Philadelphia spearheaded by Schelhase.

Haydn and the Ladies of London

The Berry Collective at SoHIP – Lincoln, MA

During his second London season in 1794-95, Haydn wrote some of his most beloved music for three accomplished women. The sonatas and trios written for esteemed pianist and composer Therese Jansen are monumental masterworks that would not exist were it not for her talent. The "Gypsy" trio, written for talented amateur pianist Rebecca Schroeter, is a perennial favorite, and Haydn's settings of poet Anne Hunter's texts reveal a true creative partnership between the two. Ms. Berry performs on a Broadwood fortepiano built in London only a decade after Haydn's sojourn there. Haydn befriended Broadwood during this first London visit.
