Chopin and the Americans
2:30pm pre-concert lecture with 'cellist Claudio Jaffe
Delray String Quartet
Mei Mei Luo & Valentin Mansurov, violins, Felicia Besan, viola, Claudio Jaffe, ‘cello, with pianist Jure Rozman
Chopin’s First Piano Concerto appears in an arrangement by Richard Hofmann (1844-1918). The program is flanked by two “American” works: a quartet movement by West Palm Beach-affiliated composer Richard Danielpour and Dvořák’s “American” Quartet.
A string quartet concert becomes “a stirring experience in the hands of the Delray musicians.”

Bernstein at 100
2:30pm pre-concert conversation with pianist Yoko Sata Kothari
Trillium Piano Trio
Ruby Berland, violin, Susannah Kelly, ‘cello, Yoko Sata Kothari, piano
As we close out Bernstein’s centennial year, Trillium Piano Trio performs Bernstein’s early Piano Trio, written while the young composer was still a student at Harvard. Two celebrated trios by Beethoven and Schumann round out the program.
“One aspect of Kothari’s playing that is appealing is her power; she has a strong, masculine approach that is refreshing in a piano market where delicacy and holding back is considered king.”--All Music Guide
Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op. 11
Bernstein: Piano Trio (1937)
Schumann: Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 63
