The Morgenstern Piano Trio | 7:30 p.m. FRI. MAR 22, 2019
Single Ticket: $35 | Student Ticket: $10
The audience and the press celebrate the Morgenstern Trio for highest chamber music and technical standards: its long-matured interpretations fascinate in the elaboration of finest nuances.
Above all, however, the unmistakable desire for common expression, the ever-present curiosity, the immediacy of the group's enthusiasm for playing captivate the listener.
In the Piano Trio - as in no other genre - symphonic density and power are combined with the audibility and intimacy of a solo recital. Balancing these charming opposites in a homogenous overall sound is the great challenge in piano trios.
Through a conscientious as well as creative occupation with the repertoire over many years, the three musicians of the Morgenstern Trio succeed in presenting this ideal in an impressive way.
Decorated with the highest prices and awards (Vienna, Melbourne, ARD, KLRITA), the Morgenstern Trio is at home on the most important podiums in the world. These include: Carnegie Hall New York, Kennedy Center Washington DC, Musikverein and Konzerthaus Vienna, Philharmonics Essen, Cologne and Berlin, Concertgebouw Amsterdam and others.
"The Morgenstern Trio gave a smashing debut Thursday night at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater. In works by Ravel, Bernstein and Brahms, the group displayed a unanimity, polished technique and musical imagination that I thought had vanished from the scene with the demise of the Beaux Arts Trio"
