|Haydn||Piano Trio in E, Hob XV:28|
|Brahms||Piano Trio No. 2 in C, Op. 87|
|Saint-Saëns||Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 92|
Haydn’s late trio in E major, with its beautifully expressive middle movement in E minor, is followed by Brahms’s majestic C major trio composed in the early 1880s, as he completed the third symphony. Saint-Saëns’s dramatic and passionately melodic second trio, composed whilst he was in Algeria in 1892, completes their programme.
