Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio performs music of three centuries Nov. 8

“One of the best-blended, most sensitive, and intelligent piano trios in the world today.”
– New York Times

The Oneppo Chamber Music Series at the Yale School of Music presents the august Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio in concert on Tuesday, November 8.

The members of the trio, currently celebrating their thirty-fifth year together, are Joseph Kalichstein, piano; Jaime Laredo, violin; and Sharon Robinson, cello. All three lead accomplished solo careers; when they come together, they are the “foremost trio with the greatest longevity… bring[ing] to worldwide audiences their expressive and exhilarating interpretations” (Musical America).

The program opens with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Trio in B-flat major, Op. 11. Next on the program, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Piano Trio was first premiered by the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio in 1987 and appeared on their 1996 album Legacies; the trio has since performed three other premieres for the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer.

Piotr Illyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 50, concludes the program. The work, written in 1881, is striking in its Romantic depth of emotion, carried through funeral marches and an ecstatic theme and variations, and also for its virtuosity.

The concert beings at 8 pm in Morse Recital Hall (located in Sprague Hall at 470 College Street, corner of Wall Street). Tickets are $25–$35, $15 with student ID. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit music.yale.edu or call the Yale School of Music concert office at 203 432-4158. MORE

“…The world’s definitive archive of historical material on American music.”
– The New York Times

Vivian Perlis interviews Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein in Copland’s home.

The Yale School of Music presents Voices of American Music, a concert tribute to the legendary Oral History of American Music (OHAM) project at Yale. The concert will take place on Tuesday, April 6 at 8 pm in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven) as part of the Chamber Music Society at Yale.

The works of some of America’s most important composers will be heard in a rare program that joins music with footage from OHAM’s archives. Founded by Vivian Perlis, one of the foremost historians of American music, OHAM is dedicated to collecting and preserving audio and video memoirs of notable figures in American music. The musicologist H. Wiley Hitchcock called OHAM “an incomparable resource, the most extensive ongoing oral history project in America.”
