Hi Friends, We have two great events coming up in St. Louis very soon: This Friday, 5/6, 7:30pm, in the Recital Hall at the 560 Music Center (in the Delmar Loop), the Trinity Piano Trio will be playing music by Schubert, Dvorak and Bulgarian composer, Petko Staynov.
With Amanda Kirkpatrick on piano, Manuela Kaymakanova on violin and Tracy Andreotti on cello, you’ll be listening to three of the very top performers in the area – and the hall is wonderfully intimate, with perfect acoustics.
Then on Saturday, 5/14, 7:30pm at the Kranzberg Arts Center, New Music Circle will present Trio Kinsella (flute, piano & cello) performing George Crumb’s great 20th century work, Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) with special atmospheric blue lighting and the performers donning masks. Aside from the stunning visual impact, the music itself is exceptional. All three musicians employ extended techniques on their instruments, creating a mysterious and beautiful effect.
Also on the program will be music by John Corigliano, Thailand’s Narong Prangcharoen, former St. Louis Symphony composer in residence, Joseph Schwantner and the World Premiere of “Falling Through Infinity” by Nicholas Omiccioli.
