Westmoreland Symphony presents Academy Concerts – Trio Sine Nomine

May 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Violinist Lydia Choorapuzha, violist Warren Davidson, and Pittsburgh Symphony assistant principal cellist Adam Liu perform a varied and fascinating program of string trio music at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center.

“Three Spirituals” by American composer Adolphus Hailstork takes traditional tunes and treats them with Baroque counterpoint technique and jazz harmonies. Hungarian Ernst von Dohnanyi’s “Serenade” is perhaps his most frequently performed work, inspired by a Beethoven trio; Beethoven, in his turn, was inspired to write for string trio by Mozart’s “Divertimento.” Some musicians (including the violist in this performance) think the Mozart Divertimento is the best piece ever written for sting trio. Come judge for yourself!

Free admission is made possible by a grant from Michael J. and Aimee Rusinko Kakos. Donations to help keep the music happening are gratefully received.
