Break from Normalcy – the “Trout” Piano Quintet
Kuei-I Wu, Piano
Yoon Young Bae, Violin
Rebecca Henry, Viola
Yoon Nah Cho, Cello
Jonathan Jenson, Double Bass

Taking a break from the traditional norm, Schubert’s “Trout” Piano Quintet uses double bass in its instrumentation to create a different sonority. Schubert’s use of his own Lieder in this piece brings an enchanting lyricism to the composition. In addition to “Trout”, two duets by Beethoven and Martinů featuring unusual routes on instrumentation will round out an evening of refreshing aural experience..

The Wonderment of John Coltrane

Michael Raitzyk, Guitar

John William Coltrane was a major innovator in the world of Jazz. His associations with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Thelonious Monk laid the foundation for his monumental impact throughout the world. Although he only lived to the age of 40 years, his technique on the tenor and soprano saxophone, as well as his compositions, are still being learned by every serious jazz musician to this day. In the traditional organ trio setting (organ, guitar, drums) we will explore a few of Mr. Coltrane's compositions.
