The Oak Ridge Civic Music Association Chamber Music Series concludes with a concert by the world-renown Adaskin String Trio, joined by members of Ensemble Schumann. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Pollard Auditorium.
The Adaskin String Trio’s stirring performances have thrilled audiences in the U.S. and internationally. Their playing has been hailed for “vigor, precision and stylistic certitude” (Charleston Gazette) as well as “spontaneity, intensity and charm” (Peninsula Review). The Boston Globe praised them for “directing the listener to the heart of the matter.”
The Trio members met in Montreal in 1994 where they studied chamber music with cellist Marcel Saint-Cyr. They are now based in New England, and perform extensively in the United States and Canada. They have appeared in the Merkin Concert Hall in New York and Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. This dynamic ensemble commands a wide string trio repertoire ranging from Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven to Dohnanyi, Rozsa, and Villa-Lobos. [Read more…]
