We enjoy working with guest musicians. Past collaborations include performances with soprano Lucy Shelton and piano quartet works with violists Dimitri Murrath and Jennifer Stumm. Lysander will also be joined by soprano Sarah Shafer in a world premiere recording of "Love Sweet" by Jennifer Higdon on our upcoming CD. Here are two of our ongoing projects.
Charles Neidich, clarinet + Lysander Piano Trio: TRANSPLANTED
The Lysander Piano Trio and clarinetist Charles Neidich come together for a program by European composers–Bartok (Hungary), Castelnuovo-Tedesco (Italy), Hindemith (Germany), and Ben-Haim (Germany)–who were displaced due to the rise of Nazism and Fascism in the 1930s and sought refuge outside of Europe, relocating to the United States and Israel.
Paul Ben-Haim: Variations on a Hebrew Melody (1939) for piano trio
Bela Bartók: Contrasts (1938) for clarinet, violin and piano
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco: Romanzero Con Variazioni from Trio, op. 70 no. 2 for piano trio
Paul Hindemith: Quartet For Clarinet and Piano Trio (1939) for clarinet and piano trio
Mischa Bouvier, baritone + Lysander Piano Trio
Chamber Music and Art Song come together for an evening of strings, piano, and voice. Take your pick of two program offerings:
an all-Beethoven concert that includes the composer’s sublime arrangements of diverse English folk songs for trio and voice, ranging from the heroic to the hilarious.
an Evening of Russian Music, including sets of gorgeous romances by Glinka and Rachmaninoff as well as Tchaikovsky's epic Piano Trio "In Memory of A Great Artist."
