Believe it or not our second Music In Maryland show is done and ready to air! MIM 2, as I call it, features performances by the Aspen String Trio who will be performing Beethoven’s String Trio op. 9 # 1 and Mozart’s Divertimento K. 563. Both are fabulous pieces and recorded beautifully by AST cellist Mike Mermagen. The performances were recorded during the 2010 season at University of Baltimore’s Wright Theatre where the Aspen String Trio is in residence. If you want to see them live they are performing at UB on Tuesday March 11 @ 7:30. I will be there introducing the group and doing some commentary. On the program Beethoven’s Serenade for string trio op. 8 and Mozart’s Divertimento K. 563. The Aspen String Trio is made up of Violinist David Perry, Violist Victoria Chiang and Cellist Michael Mermagen. They are all fine musicians and I hope you can make either Music in Maryland on Saturday 3/1 @ 6 or live at UB Tuesday 3/7 @ 7:30.
Next Week (3/8) MIM will feature performances by the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra! In April we will be running a repeat broadcast of excerpts from the epic Peabody Beethoven Piano Sonata Marathon featuring the students of Leon Fleisher. Hope you can tune in.
