Anne-Sophie Mutter, Yuri Bashmet, and Lynn Harrell performed three early works for string trio by Beethoven tonight at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver: Trio No. 3 in C minor, Op. 9, Serenade in D Major, Op. 8, and Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 3.

It was remarkable to hear three powerhouse musicians play together with such subtlety. Having a viola instead of a piano join the violin and cello results in a much more blended sound, as if they were breathing together.

If you get a chance to hear them play, grab it.

Thursday is Remembrance Day in Canada, and even the punk clothing store mannequins are wearing red poppies. After the intermission, Bashmet and Harrell returned to the stage wearing poppies on their jackets. It's possible that Mutter did, too, but I was in the nosebleed section, and she was wearing a orangey-coral spaghetti strap baby doll top; it would have blended in if she did.
