Trio des Alpes
Concert Hall (Performing Arts & Humanities Building)
“Individually excellent, they are even more impressive together,” wrote the Gazzetta di Mantova after a concert by the Italian-Swiss Trio des Alpes, thereby describing one of this Trio’s essential qualities: three independent, all-round successful personalities meeting as a trio. What attracts them is the quintessence of chamber music: dialogue, a shared sound and the blending of three instruments into a single whole. The Trio’s program will feature works by women composers, including the U.S. premiere of a new piece by UMBC professor Linda Dusman. (Click heading for full description.)
