While Mozart’s Piano Quartet in E flat major is a fundamental part of the chamber music repertoire, Brahms’s Trio faded into obscurity despite its ingenuity, besides his Clarinet Quintet in B minor, which followed shortly thereafter. Although the Trio in A minor originally featured the clarinet, the cello and the piano, Brahms also authorised all future performers to play the woodwind part on a viola. The same formation inspired Máté Balogh to compose the introductory piece commissioned by Festival Academy. The Artisjus and Junior Prima Awards-winning composer commented on his work with the following words: „My composition TRIOverture must be preceded Brahms’s Trio in A minor, op. 114 without any kind of break or intercession. The conclusion of my piece is Brahms’s Trio itself in the form of a paraphrase: my composition offers an overture to Brahms’s work. My hope and intention is that the audience interpret the two as a formidable union composed jointly by Brahms and me.”
