Date: January 26, 2013
Time: 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Location: Olin Theater
Event Type: Concerts & Performances
Description: The Kandinsky Trio celebrates its 25th season with a unique commissioning project, “25 X 25.” Twenty-five composers are writing 25 short pieces commemorating the Trio’s quarter century of music making. The works will be performed this season as part of a Trio series at Roanoke College. The Trio’s Champagne Concert will feature the charming and inviting Trio in B-flat Major, K. 502 of Wolfgang Mozart, a longtime favorite. The musicians revisit it along with three debuts from the “25 X 25” project, with works by Judith Shatin, Jon Grier and David Jones. Gabriel Faure’s richly expressive Piano Quartet No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 15, which has endured as his most popular chamber work, will complete the evening’s performance. Joining the Trio will be violist Hillary Herndon, an assistant professor at the University of Tennessee and an active chamber music collaborator throughout the United States.
