A Beautiful Afternoon of Beautiful Music

The Poinsett Piano Trio visited Trinity on Saturday, January 28 and provided a wonderful afternoon of chamber music to an appreciative audience.  The concert (view the program here) included music by Dvorak, Grieg, and Ravel.

The members of the ensemble are David Gross (piano), Deirdre Hutton (violin), and Christopher Hutton (cello).   All three serve on the music faculty of Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.  I was delighted to find out that Christopher and Deirdre were students at the Eastman School of Music at the same time as I was, and we enjoyed reminiscing about those days and talking about people that we knew in common.

If you missed the concert, here is a brief snippet.  It is a slow movement from a Trio by the early twentieth-century French composer Maurice Ravel, and in it you’ll hear some very elegant and lyrical playing:

Ravel, Trio in A minor: Passacaille (Très large)
