Jennifer Koh, violin / Anssi Karttunen, cello / Benjamin Hochman, piano
A special collection of artists combines forces to present a new piano trio by the masterful Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, commissioned in part by the Library of Congress. Three of Saariaho’s works will be performed by musicians who are no strangers to her music. A selection of sonatas by Debussy and Ravel populates the remainder of the program, including Ravel’s lesser-known duo sonata for violin and cello (composed as part of the Debussy memorial work Le tombeau de Claude Debussy). Nordic fresh air sweeps through the Gallic countryside, giving the whole a refreshing feel.
Presented in association with the European Month of Culture
