About

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 Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio concert will feature two quintets written for the unusual ensemble of Piano Trio, Viola, and Double Bass: one of Schubert's best-loved works, the "Trout" Quintet, and the DC premiere, a Fortas co-commission, of Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Taafe Zwilich's Quintet inspired by Schubert's. Written for the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, violist Michael Tree, a founding member of the legendary Guarneri Quartet, and Harold Robinson, who was the NSO's principal bassist from 1985 to 1995, the work is a typical Zwilich combination of emotional intensity and jazzy, frolicking fun. At its center is a bluesy Fantasy that toys with the famous Schubert theme, whimsically titled "The Moody Trout."
