PAN HARMONIA’s 19th Season of captivating chamber concerts continues with iconic trios by Johannes Brahms, Bohuslav Martinu and Camille Saint-Säens. Raleigh-based cellist Nathan Leyland joins clarinetist Fred Lemmons, pianist Hwa-Jin Kim and flutist Kate Steinbeck in profoundly moving, joyful and beautiful chamber works: Johannes Brahms’ Clarinet Trio, Op 114; Bohuslav Martinů’s effervescent Trio for flute, cello, piano; Camille Saint-Säens’ jocular Tarantella, Op. 6.

Johannes Brahms’ powerful late work is a beautiful example of Romantic lyricism, fully expressive as well as poignantly introspective. Bohuslav Martinu’s Trio was written during the war in 1944 when the composer was residing in the US. His longing for his Czech homeland is evident in the quintessentially bright and cheerful sonorities of bells and birds, yet one might also hear a “film noir,” espionage element in this work as well.
