Tonight, the technically impeccable Hermitage Piano Trio represents their motherland with an all-Russian program featuring Tchaikovsky’s delightful take on the months of the year, as well as a more melancholic piece created by a 19-year-old Rachmaninoff. Perhaps the ultimate reason to attend, though, is to give witness to the Piano Trio No. 2 composed by the emotionally tortured Dmitri Shostakovich. Created during World War II, this uncanny work of dissonant tones, agitated rhythms, and unsettled sonic quality somehow manages to capture the reality of millions dead and millions more terrorized. The piano, cello, and violin have never sounded more disturbing.
