Anchored on the great piano trio in C minor by Mendelssohn, the program will also include works by the Spanish composer Joaquín Turina, as well as the “Gypsy” trio by Haydn. From the great pioneer of the piano trio, to the poetry of a Romantic giant, to the irresistible flavor of Spanish music, this evening is certain to inspire. Pianist Catherine Lan will be joined by violinist Huifang Chen and cellist Claudio Jaffe. These veteran artists will bring the music to life through their passion, dynamism, and virtuosity.
