POULENC Élégie for horn and piano
MENDELSSOHN String Quartet in F minor Op.80
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Trio in A minor Op.50 In memory of a great artist
These three heartfelt works were all written in memory of fellow musicians. Poulenc was in Britain when he heard the news of Dennis Brain’s death in a car crash, and the poignant Élégie was his touching tribute to the great horn player. Mendelssohn’s String Quartet Op. 80 was originally called ‘Requiem for Fanny’, composed as a memorial to his beloved sister. It also turned out to be Mendelssohn’s last major work as he, too, died a few weeks after finishing it. Tchaikovsky wrote his Piano Trio in 1881 during a visit to Italy, and he dedicated it to his great mentor Nikolai Rubinstein. It is a brooding and a nobly elegiac memorial.
