AMHERST, Mass.—The Music at Amherst Concert Series presents the Florestan Trio Thursday, March 13, at 8 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. A limited number of tickets are available for purchase through the Amherst College Concert Office.
Winners of the 2000 Royal Philharmonic Society Award, the 12-year-old Florestan Trio is internationally recognized for their achievements in performance and devotion to their field of music, which they believe deserves wholehearted commitment. In celebration of their 10th anniversary season, the Trio completed a recording of the Beethoven cycle of trios for Hyperion Records. In this concert, the Florestan Trio will play Juon’s Piano Trio in A minor, Op. 17, and Haydn’s Piano Trio in D Major, Hob. XV:24, and will close with Brahms’s Piano Trio in B Major, Op. 8.
The Music at Amherst Series has one remaining concert this season. On Saturday, April 12, tenor Joseph Kaiser will close the 2007-08 season with a solo recital.
Tickets for the Florestan Trio are available to the general public for $25. Tickets for senior citizens and Amherst College employees are $20, student tickets are $10 and Amherst College student tickets are $6. Tickets for all concerts go on sale two weeks prior to the date of the performance and may be purchased in advance by calling the Concert Office at 413/542-2195.
