Chamber Music Amarillo's March concert is all about the trio.
Three performers will be featured at Saturday's concert, performing works by three composers from three countries.
The Greats of Austria, Spain and Russia will be performed at 8 p.m. Saturday in CMA's Fibonacci Space, 3306 S.W. Sixth Ave. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students. Call 806-236-3545.
On tap: Joseph Haydn's Piano Trio No. 40 in F-sharp minor, Manuel de Falla's Suite Populaire Espagnole and Pyotr Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio in A minor, to be performed by Will Fedkenheuer, violin; Emmanuel Lopez, cello; and Diego Caetano, piano.
"This will be a tour de force concert," Caetano said.
"We start with a Haydn trio, which is a great example of sturm and drang, the sentimentalism in which extremes of emotion were given free expression," Caetano continued. "Haydn was a great adept of this practice. You can expect outbursts of dynamic from the most introverted pianissimo to the most powerful fortissimo."
The de Falla piece was originally written for piano and soprano, but Fedkenheuer and Caetano will team on this transcription.
"The work is not as serious as the Haydn and Tchaikovsky, but is full of drama and folklore influenced melodies," Caetano said. "You can really hear Andalusian influence and especially flamenco dancing."
The concert will conclude with Tchaikovsky's masterpiece, "the pinnacle of the Romantic trio writing," Caetano said.
"You get every single emotion available to the humankind in this piece," he said. "One must have at least 17 hearts, because one heart alone can not be broken that many times during the piece."
Saturday's events will begin with a 7 p.m. pre-concert lecture.
Plus, CMA will host Friday Family Night, an all-ages evening featuring an introduction to the concert's artists and works.
