The Trio Ariadne will give their debut performance as Artists-in-Residence at Sonoma State University's Weill Hall at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 in a free concert. Parking is also free.
Members of the trio are Carol McGonnell, clarinet; Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir, cello; and Elizabeth Joy Roe, piano. They will play three chamber works composed for clarinet, cello and piano - a less-common ensemble than the standard piano trio instrumentation of violin, cello and piano.
The program includes:
Beethoven: Piano Trio in E-flat Op. 11
Robert Muczynski: Fantasy Trio Op. 26
Brahms: Trio in A Minor Op. 114
"We wanted to bring some classics - Beethoven and Brahms - then add something that people might not have heard of with the Muczynski. That kind of programming is what our collective esthetic is about," said Roe.
Though the concert is free, tickets must be reserved by calling (707) 664-4246. Weill Hall at the Green Music Center is located at the north campus entrance off Rohnert Park Expressway. Park in Lot O.
Trio Ariadne will present a second free performance in the spring on April 4, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. in Weill Hall. The program will include trios by Beethoven (Opus 38) and Zemlinsky.
