This week's show was based around friendship, dedication, and memories. Rachmaninov's Trio was composed in dedication to Tchaikovsky following his death. Many of the themes throughout the piece emulate Tchaikovsky's trio. Mendelssohn's Variations Seriesuses composed in a mass effort by artists to erect and monument on Beethoven's behalf in his hometown. Overall, a quite emotional show for this week.
