Although Beethoven never actually abandoned the Classical harmonic language, which he had fully mastered in a fairly young age, his middle period works gradually moved away from Classical spirits and become increasingly notable for its expression of heroism and struggle. The two concerts demonstrate a comparison of his early and middle period works, including the the rarely performed Piano Trio adaptation for the Symphony No.2 in D major, to see how he progressed from work to work with revolutionary brilliance.
The DNA Trio is comprising of Chinese pianist Jialin Zhang, violinist Jingjie Zhang and cellist Zhao Song. The artists started their friendship for over two decades and have been playing together since 2005 around China. In 2008 the trio released the record “Beethoven, Mozart & Haydn Piano Trios” by NCPA CLASSICS. When not playing together, the three are also established musician and educator as individuals.
