For more than 25 years, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo, and cellist Sharon Robinson have been the reigning exemplar for the piano trio. "Evenly and expertly matched, [they] convey the sheer pleasure of making music so spontaneously. Individually and collectively, these musicians are special" (The Chicago Tribune). For its second season as the Kennedy Center Chamber Music Ensemble-in-Residence, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio joins forces with The Miami String Quartet, which has quickly established its place among the most respected young quartets in America. "The Miami players have everything one wants in a quartet: a rich, precisely balanced sound, a broad coloristic palette, real unity of interpretive purpose, and seemingly unflagging energy" (The New York Times). Together in the Terrace Theater, the two ensembles offer a complete survey of string combinations—a trio by Beethoven, a quartet by Wolf, a quintet by Brahms, and a sextet by Dvo?ák.
