Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio Performs at Middlebury


Opening the Middlebury College Concert Series, the

Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio graced the Center for the Arts

Concert Hall again this September to the delight of the Middlebury

audience. The group has continued their survey of the piano trios

by Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Brahms, which they began last season.

Their program for this concert will be Schubert’s Trio in

B-flat Major, D. 28, and Trio in E-flat Major, Opus 148,

D. 897, “Notturno”; Brahm’s Trio in C Major,

Opus 87; and Mendelssohn’s Trio in C Minor, Opus 66.

Now in their 21st season together, pianist

Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon

Robinson perform regularly at summer festivals, chamber music

series and major international music centers, from Carnegie Hall

to the Kennedy Center. The group is described as “one of

the best blended, most sensitive and intelligent piano trios in

the world today,” by John Rockwell of “The New York

Times.” Ranking in the highest echelon of chamber ensembles,

the trio has produced a number of recordings, including an all-Haydn

disc (Dorian), which “Stereo Review” praised: “There

are surprisingly few recordings of the Haydn trios on CD, and

none is more satisfying than this lovely assortment: ‘enlivening’

is the first word that comes to mind, ‘radiant’ the impression

that remains.”

A pre-performance dinner was held at the Rehearsals

Cafe in the Center for the Arts.
