Westmoreland Symphony presents Academy Concerts - Trio Sine Nomine

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

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 turn, was inspired to write for a 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 a string trio. Come judge for yourself!

Concerts made possible by Michael J. Kakos and Aimee Rusinko Kakos
