The Beaux Arts Trio's Witt Series appearance is sponsored by the Ruth B. & Thomas F. Mackey Charitable Trust. Like all series events, the performance is free and open to the public.
The Wittenberg performance is one of 18 stops on the Beaux Arts Trio's final North American tour, which spans from April 1-20. The trio has also scheduled a European tour from Aug. 25 through Sept. 6.
Comprised of pianist and founder Menahem Pressler, British violinist Daniel Hope, who joined the trio in 2002, and Brazilian-born cellist Antonio Meneses, who joined in 1998, the Beaux Arts Trio will perform "Trio in A minor" by Maurice Ravel, "Work for Piano Trio" by Gyorgy Kurtag and "Trio No. 1 in B-flat major, Op. 99 (D. 898)" by Franz Schubert.
The Beaux Arts Trio, which made its public debut in 1955 at the Berkshire Music Festival, consistently garners positive reviews for artistry, musicianship and comprehensive repertoire. The trio celebrated a successful 50th anniversary season in 2005 with a sold-out recital in Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood Music Center in Boston.
The Witt Series brings distinguished lecturers and performing artists of national and international prominence to the campus and local community.
