Friday, October 10 A showcase line-up of repertoire from one of classical chamber music's most recognizable ensemble groupings: the piano trio. Opening the program is the exquisite and famous Mendelssohn Piano Trio no. 1 in d minor followed by a journey into the evocative and stunning sound world of Ravel's Piano Trio. Then immerse yourself in the foot-tapping, jazz-infused music of Paul Schoenfield and the jokester musings of Shchedrin's hilarious toung-in-cheek depictions of the classical music world.

Doors open at 6:45pm. There will be a 7:15pm Pre-Concert Talk and the concert will begin at 8:00pm. For tickets and to learn more, go to http://musicatmsj.org/
