Clarinetist David Shifrin joins for the Brahms Clarinet Trio
The Yale School of Music presents a Faculty Artist Recital by Ole Akahoshi, cello, and Elizabeth Parisot, piano, on Monday, January 31, at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall (located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street, New Haven). The performers, who are both members of the School of Music faculty as well as graduates of the School, will be joined by a third faculty member, clarinetist David Shifrin.
The concert of Romantic works will open with Beethoven’s Cello Sonata in A major, Op. 69, and will continue with Schubert’s Cello Sonata in A minor, D. 821 (originally written for a six-stringed instrument called the arpeggione but most often played today on cello or viola).
Clarinetist David Shifrin will join the duo to perform Brahms’s Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano in A minor, Op. 114. Of the piece, the composer’s friend Eusebius Mandyczewski wrote, “It is as though the instruments were in love with each other.” MORE
