Trio for Flute, Oboe and Piano in E flat Major, Op.74
Karl Goepfart (1859-1942) after initial studies with his father became a student of Franz Liszt in Weimar. He enjoyed a career as a concert pianist as well as a conductor both in Europe and the United States. He wrote operas, symphonies as well as several chamber music works.
The Trio in E flat Major, Op.74 dates from 1898. In three movements, it begins with an Allegro risoluto. It is in two sections which alternate with each other. The first begins with a long-lined, flowing melody, heavily accented. The second section is somewhat brighter with a chirpy, bird-like syncopated theme. The middle movement, Andante Cantabile, is a lovely, sad song without words, very lyrical. The finale, Allegro con brio, is a bouncy affair, full of racing, dazzlingly runs
