Part of Chamber Music Across America
Chamber Music Across America kicks off three consecutive performances of chamber ensemble double billings with two of the Kennedy Center's favorite groups. Joseph Kalichstein, Jaime Laredo, and Sharon Robinson form one of the country's "foremost trios with the greatest longevity... bring(ing) to worldwide audiences their expressive and exhilarating interpretations" (Musical America). Joining the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio is the Emerson String Quartet, called "the most exciting American string quartet of its generation" by the New York Times.
The union of these players opens the door to ensemble works that could not otherwise be performed by these two groups. Brahms's Piano Quartet in C minor will be played by the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio joined by violist Larry Dutton, and Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht will be played by the Emerson String Quartet with Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson.
