    Merz Trio, winners of the Naumburg, Concert Artists Guild, Fischoff, and Chesapeake Competitions, present a program of 19th and early 20th-century masterworks teeming with boundary-breaking energy. Beethoven’s middle period masterwork, Op. 70 No. 2, is paired here with four later Viennese songs that draw attention to both its lyrical and virtuosic elements, while Brahms’ glorious B Major Trio, composed when he was only 21 but revised in later years, showcases him as both a pioneering romantic and as a consummate master at the height of his powers. Ravel’s La Valse rounds out this program with its blend of joy and dark nostalgia.
