The theme of friendship links Mozart’s elegant duo for violin and viola, composed to help out a friend in need, and Tchaikovsky’s epic Piano Trio written in memory of the great pianist Nikolai Rubinstein.

Debussy’s Cello Sonata was written in the final years of his life, and is infused with the spirits of the commedia dell’arte and the French music of the past.
