The Mendelssohn Trio

April 12, 2012

'The Mendelssohn Trio possesses something extremely rare,' says, "and that is a wonderful sense of ensemble and knowledge of each other's playing that borders on the uncanny... It is a real joy to watch their interactions.'

The Mendelssohn Trio is preparing for their third European tour.Monday, April 16
7:30-9 pm.
University Center of the Arts
Organ Recital Hall

The Mendelssohn Trio performs Beethoven’s Archduke Trio Op. 95, and with guest Margaret Miller on viola, Dvorak’s E flat major Piano Quartet Op. 87.

Now a fixture of the annual concert rotation at CSU, the trio – Ron Francois, violin; Barbara Thiem, cello; and Theodor Lichtmann, piano – was formed in 1988 and is named for Thiem’s great-grandfather, Franz von Mendelssohn, a nephew of composer Felix Mendelssohn.
