In addition to mentoring both Mozart and Beethoven, Joseph Hadyn helped invent chamber music, including the piano trio. Now, playing some of the world's most highly prized instruments, The Smithsonian Chamber Players pay tribute to Haydn's trailblazing piano trios, which were influential for combining folk influences with musical depth. This intimate concert at the National Museum of American History is part of the Smithsonian Chamber Music Society's Masterworks of Four Centuries series, and marks the society's 39th season. Come early to join SCMS artistic director and fortepiano player Kenneth Slowik as he sheds light on Hadyn's life and work in a pre-show lecture.
