Classical Concert: TriMusica
clarinet, cello, and piano
Sunday, January 13, 2019
The famed musicians of TriMusica – clarinetist Sandra McPherson, cellist Susan Lamb Cook, and pianist John Cozza – return to the Crocker to present an afternoon of sound inspired by the Crocker’s collection of European art. Included in the program will be Beethoven’s Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11, which was composed especially for this appealing trio of instruments that were newly popular in chamber music at the turn of the 18th century. Evoking the idyllic social gatherings and salon parties depicted in the Crocker’s European painting collection, the program will unfold like a musical soirée as the members of TriMusica perform an array of works, including their own arrangement of Schumann’s Fantasy Pieces.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of select works from the Crocker’s permanent collection of European paintings, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
