Vocal Inspirations

Schubert, Brahms, and Dvořák wrote extensively for the voice throughout their careers. These three works draw upon these composer’s fascination with melodic invention and how the human voice can be recreated by string and keyboard instruments. In addition, Brahms wrote his first Piano Trio as a young man but revised the work at the end of his career transforming a composition that was often neglected into one of the most-performed pieces of chamber music.
