Joseph Kalichstein, Jaime Laredo, and Sharon Robinson are the founding members of the Kennedy Center's Chamber Ensemble in Residence, forming one of the country's "foremost trios with the greatest longevity... bring[ing] to worldwide audiences their expressive and exhilarating interpretations" (Musical America).
The Washington premiere of Stanley Silverman's Piano Trio No. 2, written for them just last year and inspired by a lute song to a beautiful eulogy from Shakespeare's Cymbeline, will be framed by the much-loved Brahms B major Trio and Beethoven's late Allegretto, composed for a 9-year-old student, the daughter of his Immortal Beloved.
