1X BOX Chamber music concert features piano trio

Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN

While dedicated to the smaller, more intimate works of chamber music, the Rochester Chamber Music Society is growing its concert season.

This year, the society will host four concerts rather than three, said artistic director Horacio Nuguid.

Opening this season is a concert by the Schubert Trio, a Twin Cities-based group.


The season also features members of the Rochester Symphony Orchestra Nov. 8, a Rochester young artists concert Feb. 7 and "An Evening of French Music" April 18.

"I try to do lots of variety," he said, noting, "This is the first time featuring a piano trio in this series."

The trio consists of Tom Rosenberg on cello, Helen Chang on violin and Dan Rieppel on piano.

Rieppel played a solo recital presented by the Rochester Chamber Music Society last March. Rosenberg has appeared in Rochester twice before with the society.

As a group, they are famous for their vibrant interpretations of Schubert, Nuguid said. This concert, however, will only include one movement by Schubert.

On the program are Trio in C Major by Franz Joseph Haydn, Trio in D Minor by Gabriel Faure and Trio in C Minor by Johannes Brahms.
