Trio Solisti

In a special two-evening engagement, the “consistently brilliant” Trio Solisti (NY Times) makes its Duke debut as “the most exciting piano trio in America” (The New Yorker), having now displaced the Beaux Arts Trio, critics say, as “the outstanding chamber music ensemble of its kind” (Wall Street Journal). The trio has transfixed audiences worldwide with performances emanating both musical virtuosity and a muscular grace. On Friday, they pair Dvořák  and Mendhelssohn with Spaniard Joaquín Turina; on Saturday they bring their “unrelenting passion and zealous abandon” (Washington Post) to a program that bookends one of Chopin’s great works with two powerful Russian pieces.

PROGRAM:
Friday
TURINA: Piano Trio No. 2 in B Minor, Op. 76
DVORAK: Piano Trio in F Minor, Op. 65
MENDELSSOHN: Piano Trio No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 66 

Saturday
RACHMANINOFF: Trio Elegiac No. 1 in G Minor (1892)
CHOPIN: Piano Trio in G Minor, Op. 8
MUSSORGSKY: Pictures at an Exhibition (arr. Trio Solisti)
