Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio Returns to Middlebury

The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, which opened
the Middlebury College Concert Series last fall, will return to
the Concert Hall at the College’s Center for the Arts at 7:30
p.m. on Tuesday, April 7. The group will conclude its survey of
the piano trios by Schubert, Mendelssohn, and Brahms, which the
musicians began last season. Their program for this concert will
be Mendelssohn’s Sonata for Cello and Piano in D Major,
Schubert’s Trio in B-flat Major, Opus 99, and Brahms’ Trio
in B Major, Opus 8.

Since their debut at the inauguration of President
Carter in 1977, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo
and cellist Sharon Robinson have performed regularly together
at summer festivals, chamber music series and major international
music centers, from Carnegie Hall to the Kennedy Center. Ranking
in the highest echelon of chamber ensembles, the trio has produced
a number of recordings, including a three-CD “Vox Box”
(Vox Cum Laude), featuring the three Brahms trios, the two Mendelssohn
trios, and the Dvorak Dumky. “There is no finer piano
trio than Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson,” says the Chicago
Sun Times.

Tickets for this concert series performance are $9.00
general admission and $7.00 for senior citizens. A pre-performance
dinner at 6:00 p.m. at the Rehearsals Cafe in the Center for the
Arts is also available. To order tickets or make dinner reservations,
please call the College box office at 802-443-6433.
