  1. Matthew,Classmates– This Trio is being performed by the Trio Cleonice on Sunday, April 29 at 8 pm at NEC’s Jordan Hall.
    Also on the program are Beethoven’s Piano Trio in G Major and Arthur Berger’s Piano Trio. The performance is FREE. More info on the NEC website, http://www.necmusic.edu

  2. When I first listened to the first movement of this Trio, I knew it was very familiar. On further investigation I realized it was Schumann’s Fantasy in C minor, op 73. The Compleat Brahmns article mentions this “quote.” While in a different key this is a direct quote which is fundmental to the theme/structure (?) of the Trio? Is this unusual? While it is not unusual for composers to take from each other, is this instance unusual?
