About This Performance

Composed of three dynamic, highly esteemed artists, the AKS Piano Trio made its debut three seasons ago. Combining a shared musical heritage from the Marlboro Music Festival and a love of performing great masterworks together, the trio of Lydia Artymiw, Erin Keefe, and Wilhelmina Smith has become a vital addition to the top tier of chamber ensembles. Joining the trio for this concert is Minnesota Orchestra Music Director Osmo Vänskä, who also happens to be an exceptional clarinetist. Their program includes Milhaud’s spirited Suite for Violin, Clarinet, and Piano and Kalevi Aho’s Eros, a work the Finnish composer wrote specifically for Keefe and Vänskä.

Beethoven: Clarinet Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11
Milhaud: Suite for Violin, Clarinet, and Piano, Op. 157b
Aho: Eros for Violin and Clarinet [Philadelphia Premiere]
Brahms: Piano Trio in C Major, Op. 87

This performance features a free pre-concert lecture starting at 6:45 PM with James Primosch
