February 10 & 11, 2018

What a weekend!  We welcomed back two perennial favorite artists to Musical Masterworks — Pianist Rieko Aizawa and clarinetist Todd Palmer joined Artistic Director, Edward Arron for Beethoven’s charming Opus 11 trio and Glinka’s romantic and operatic Trio Pathétique.  Rieko performed two beloved solo piano works by Chopin and Todd joined her for Poulenc’s exquisite Sonata for Clarinet and Piano.

The program also featured a rip-roaring duo for clarinet and cello composed by Svante Henryson in 1996, entitled Off Pist, and concluded with a trio arrangement of Piazzolla’s impassioned Spring from Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.
