Thoreau Piano Trio

CANCELLED Due to COVID-19 Crisis. To be Rescheduled

In celebration of the Spring Equinox, as darkness gives way to light and winter turns to spring, the Thoreau Piano Trio presents a program of masterworks both brooding and brilliant – works by Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn in which darkness, dissonance and Sturm und Drang (storm and stress) transform into brightness and exuberance.
