- 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)
