The Lincoln Ensemble presents a program of chamber works that were deeply personal for their composers, with each piece inspired by poetry, lullabies or loved ones. Loeffler’s Deux rapsodies for Oboe, Viola and Piano evokes the poems of French symbolist poet Maurice Rollinat; the poet’s words are imbued into the storminess of the piano and the flowing lines of the viola and oboe. Brahms’ Zwei Gesänge in A Major unites two of his works — a lullaby written for his best friends’ child and a song he later wrote to bolster the couple’s marriage. Schubert’s radiant, late-romantic Piano Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major completes the program.
