Friedemann Eichhorn, violin  |  Peter Hörr, cello

The Phaeton Trio will appear for the first time in the U.S. at the Library. Recently formed by a group of stellar musicians centered in Weimar and Leipzig—Friedemann Eichhorn, violin, Peter Hörr, cello and Florian Uhlig, piano—the trio will reveal the premiere of a new completion of a Beethoven piano trio fragment by Victor Kissine. In contrast with their mythological namesake, the Phaeton Trio maintains control of their musical chariot as they soar through the heavens, setting alight the music of Beethoven and Mendelssohn.
