Event Description

Dive into a treasure trove program of chamber music gems. The shimmering surface of Ravel’s Piano Trio belies its fiendishly challenging nature. Meticulously crafted and imbued with captivating colors, it remains one of the most enchanting examples of its kind. Shostakovich’s immensely popular Piano Quintet is a serene yet powerful piece marked by simplicity, clarity, and elegance. Written when she was 24, and revised in 1978 when she was 86, Germaine Tailleferre’s prismatic Piano Trio sparkles with Ravel-esque harmonies alongside neoclassical touches.
