Schubert's unfinished trio composition is rounded out in this evening concert by Arensky's Second String Quartet, probably his best-known work and a musical tribute to Tchaikovsky, who gave him much advice and encouragement. We end with Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No.9 in A Major, Op.47, the so-called ‘Kreutzer Sonata’, originally composed for the English violinist George Bridgetower before he and Beethoven fell out and the composer changed the dedication to the French virtuoso Rodolphe Kreutzer – whom he barely knew, and who in fact never performed it.
