About This Performance

The Roger & Margaret Berlin Emerging Instrumental Chamber Music Performance

Named “a talent to watch” by the New York Times, Avery Fisher Career Grant winner Alexi Kenney made a thrilling recital debut with the Society last season. Now this extraordinary young violinist with “a tone that ranges from the achingly fragile to full-bodied robustness” returns with two equally fast-rising artists in “knockout” (San Francisco Classical Voice) cellist Oliver Herbert and 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition winner Eric Lu.

Haydn: Piano Trio in E-flat Major, Hob. XV:22
Schumann: Canonic Etudes, Op. 56 [Arr.] [Sel.]
Schubert: Piano Trio in E-flat Major, D. 929
