The Cal Arte Ensemble presents the next concert in its Sunday Gallery series at the Triton Museum of Art with two outstanding chamber works: Beethoven's third Piano Sonata in C major, the most brilliant of three sonatas he dedicated to his one-time mentor Joseph Haydn. Although Beethoven once commented that he "learned nothing" from Haydn, the three piano sonatas he wrote as a sign of respect for the old master were nonetheless superbly crafted. Still in his early twenties, Beethoven had only recently arrived in Vienna and these dazzling new sonatas were part of his calling card to ignite interest among audiences. The second work on the program is Schubert's Octet in F major for Strings and Winds. His largest and most ambitious chamber work, the Octet was modeled on Beethoven's then hugely popular Septet in form, though Schubert's own distinctive musical voice shines throughout. As one reviewer put it the Octet "with its melodic and rhythmic elan and its kaleidosco­pically varied colours ... raises the hedonistic spirit of the late eighteenth-century divertimento to a supreme level."
