These unparalleled musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra explore music composed inside the world of specific cultures. The program includes one of Haydn’s best-known piano trios, Bartók’s Contrasts (filled with Hungarian and Romanian dance melodies), and closes with a later work of Brahms, one of the first chamber works composed for an ensemble featuring clarinet.
