Violinist Misha Vitenson and violist Michael Klotz from the world renowned Amernet string quartet are teaming up with Iris van Eck, principal cellist of Symphony of the Americas, for an afternoon of chamber music for string trio... Join the musicians as they will take you through travels back in time as well as opening new and unexplored horizons. On the program are Beethoven trio in Eb Major, the string trio by Penderecki & the Serenade by Ernő Dohnányi

  • Ludwig van Beethoven was born the small German city of Bonn on or around December 16, 1770, he received his early training from his father and other local musicians. The string Trio in E flat opus 3 was most likely composed in Vienna around 1795. The piece was published in May, 1796, by Artaria & Co. in Vienna.
  • Krzysztof Penderecki was born on November 23rd, 1933 in Poland ... So we will be celebrating his 80th birthday performing his trio. This dramatic as well as lyrical "String Trio" was composed in 1990 – 91
  • Ernő Dohnányi (Ernst von Dohnányi ) was born in Pozsony (now Bratislava) in 1877. He was a foremost figure in the musical life of Hungary in the opening decades of the Twentieth Century. His Serenade in C for String Trio was composed during a tour of London and Vienna, in 1902 and premiered in Vienna, by the Fitzner Quartet in 1905.

Please enjoy this partial review from a past performance of the Chameleon String Trio :

“They make a strong unit; all three are fine players, and they can be heard to good individual as well as group effect.  The Beethoven trio also announces the arrival of a significant composer, one for whom a restless, brusque energy is not only important but crucial to narrative structure. The ensemble was clean and vigorous, and advocated well for Beethoven’s intentions. Particularly notable was the tension each player brought to his and her iterations of the three-note motif that drives the argument of the first movement, and Vitenson’s deft handling of the elaborate, aria-like figurations of the slow movement”

(Greg Stepanich)
