The Sitkovesky Trio

“We are so excited and proud to return to Menlo and bring you this passionately romantic program full of verve and imagination. We start our concert with a new work by the phenomenal young composer Julia Adolphe who wrote the piece for us in memory of her father. This emotional and life-affirming trio was premiered by us at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center earlier this year, and we can‘t wait to introduce it to the Menlo Audience. The rest of the program features the Great Romantics; Edvard Grieg, Cecile Chaminade; a Trailblazer for female composers in the 19th Century; and we finish the program with Felix Mendelssohn‘s 2nd Piano Trio, undoubtedly one of his finest and most dramatic works. We can‘t wait to see you at our performance!” —The Sitkovetsky Trio
