The Kennedy Center Fortas Chamber Music Concerts
Joseph Kalichstein, artistic director
The Kalichstein, Laredo, Robinson Trio
Joseph Kalichstein, pianist
Jaime Laredo, violinist
Sharon Robinson, cellist
In this rare three-day engagement, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo, and cellist Sharon Robinson will play Beethoven's complete literature for piano trio. Since making its debut at the White House for President Carter's inauguration in 1977, the Trio has won accolades and made numerous landmark recordings. The New York Times calls the Trio's interpretations of the Beethoven piano trios "flaming and surging with vitality, the intensity felt in Joseph Kalichstein's exacting phrasing and attack at the keyboard as much as in the passionate phrasing from Sharon Robinson and Jaime Laredo." These concerts are a rare opportunity to hear Beethoven at its finest.
