Trio Zimmermann

Schoenberg and Bach


  • Trio Zimmermann

Founded in 2007 by Frank Peter Zimmermann, the admired string trio – also comprised of viola player Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltéra – comes together to perform Schoenberg’s Op. 45, written to reflect his physical and psychological suffering following a heart attack. The ensemble crowns the concert with Bach’s iconic Goldberg Variations, probably the most important take on the musical form.

  • Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951)
        • String Trio Op. 45
  • Interval
  • Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
        • Goldberg Variations BWV988 (arr. Trio Zimmermann)
