TROY, NEW YORK Troy Chromatic Concerts closes its current season with the superstars of the chamber music world, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, on Sunday, May 7, 3 PM, at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
After four decades of success the world over, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio continues to dazzle audiences and critics alike with its performances. Since making their debut at the White House for President Carter’s Inauguration in January 1977, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo, and cellist Sharon Robinson have set the standard for performance of the piano trio literature, consistently bringing technical mastery, expressive depth, and magnetism to the concert stage. The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio balances the careers of three internationally-acclaimed soloists while making annual appearances at many of the world’s major concert halls, commissioning spectacular new works, and maintaining an active recording agenda.
Celebrations of the Trio’s 40th Anniversary begin in the 2016-17 season and include a repeat of their White House program (Mendelssohn and Schubert) with a specially commissioned opening work by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ellen Zwilich, complete Beethoven cycles at Boston’s Gardner Museum and The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and much more. The Washington Post has referred to the Trio as “Among the superstars of the chamber music world” and, in 2002, Musical America recognized the Trio as “Ensemble of the Year.” The Trio’s dazzling live performances, plus its award-winning discography, continue to set the standard for excellence in the piano trio repertoire. http://www.kalichstein-laredo-robinson-trio.com/index.html

From the first concerts in private homes to the concert series of today, the aim of Troy Chromatic Concerts has been to bring musical programs of the highest caliber for the enjoyment of local audiences. Organized in 1894 by students of Troy music teacher J. Albert Jeffery, and led by David Cowee, Jr., the Chromatic Club presented its first concert in February of 1895 featuring world renowned artist Edward A. MacDowell. It was an enormous success and inspired the continuing commitment of ‘Chromatics’ to present the finest artists of their time.
