Synesthetic Visions: The Modern Piano Trio
With Clara Danchin (violin),
Andrew Briggs (cello),
John Kamfonas (piano)
Tuesday, June 13 | 7:00 p.m. | 4 rue de Chevreuse
Spring stimulates all of the senses. Nature’s blossoming renews our contact with the outside world through a synthesis of sensory experiences: a confluence of fragrances, sounds and color. In the final concert of the Spring Awakening series, Clara Danchin (violin), Andrew Briggs (cello) and John Kamfonas (piano) present an evening of acclaimed piano trio music composed over the last three decades that appeals to more than just our sense of hearing. Movement, kineticism, imagery, and color drive the inspiration behind a program of works by major composers of today including Jennifer Higdon, Kajia Saariaho, and Ned Rorem, that break the traditional mold of the classical piano trio, presenting new synesthetic visions for a time-honored genre.
