LYSANDER

Piano Trio

October 11-13, 2019

Throughout our history, Chamber Music Tulsa has enjoyed concerts by exceptional young ensembles and cultivated long-term relationships with them. On their two previous visits to Tulsa, the Lysander Piano Trio’s playing radiated intensity and sparkled with clarity. Expect to be enthralled again with the kaleidoscopic palette of musical color in their inventive programs.

Concert Highlight: Saturday

Mozart’s trio creates a listening adventure with harmonic twists and turns. In contrast, Debussy’s trio generates a gentle atmosphere of light entertainment. Liszt’s arrangement of his Hungarian Rhapsody has all the flashy virtuosity and dramatic energy you’d expect at a Hungarian carnival.

The Lysander Piano Trio, a winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition, has been praised by the Strad for its “incredible ensemble, passionate playing, articulate and imaginative ideas and wide palette of colours.”  The Trio has developed a reputation for innovative programming of master works from the canon alongside newer works and hidden gems of the repertoire.  An ideal example of this is the Trio’s 2014 debut recording, After a Dream (CAG Records), featuring music by Ravel, Haydn, Schubert, Joaquin Turina, and Moshe Zorman, which was acclaimed for its “polished and spirited interpretations” (New York Times).
