Doheny Soirée: Trio Karenine

Doheny Soirée: Trio Karenine 
Presented by The Da Camera Society of Mount Saint Mary's University 
 

Jan. 18, 2019
8 p.m. 
MSMU Doheny Campus

L.A., CA 90007

"Not for nothing" is this trio named after Tolstoy’s heroine, Anna Karenina — the life force she represents, and the "effervescence and litheness that underpins the trio's own approach" (Gramophone). Celebrated for its “superb sense of musical color and drama” (Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich), this multiple prize-winning French ensemble makes its West Coast debut with Schubert’s masterful Trio No. 2 (in E-flat, D. 929), Ravel’s exquisitely sensual Trio, and Bernstein’s witty Piano Trio. The lavishly appointed Pompeian Room is the kind of salon that would have been familiar to Karenina, and the program will evoke her personality.

Since making their Los Angeles debut in this series five years ago, the Dover's rise to the top has been "practically meteoric" (Strings). Now included among the most in-demand ensembles and considered "one of the world's finest young string quartets" (The New Yorker), they return to the Pompeian Room with their "expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, deep musical feeling and a palpable commitment to communication" in Dvorak's Quartet in A-flat (Op. 105) and Schubert's monumental final quartet (in G, D. 887). "The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet" (Chicago Tribune).

The Pompeian Room's bright acoustic and luxurious surroundings will provide a fitting setting for the West Coast debut of a unique ensemble of four internationally acclaimed artists who have enjoyed success as soloists with major symphonies. Two years ago these women joined forces to create a piano quartet. An immediate success, the ensemble is in great demand with performances at prestigious venues, which now include the Doheny Mansion. Led by Baiba Skride, a Latvian violinist celebrated for her "inherently and unfailingly beautiful tone" (The Strad), they'll bring flawless precision and breathtaking musicality to piano quartets by Mozart (No. 1 in g, K. 478), Brahms (in g, Op. 25), and Mahler — whose piano quartet is his only surviving piece of chamber music without voice.

One of the world's most celebrated string quartets, this "furiously committed" ensemble (The New Yorker) has for over 20 years impressed sold-out audiences at prestigious venues here and abroad with their "nuance, handsome phrasing and meticulous playing" (San Francisco Chronicle). A first-prize winner at multiple competitions, the Miró is in residence at the University of Texas in Austin where, with an eye to the future, it is dedicated to preserving chamber music by finding new ways to communicate with a variety of audiences. In the glow of the Pompeian Room's Tiffany dome, they will perform quartets by Beethoven (in f, Op. 95, "Serioso"), Schumann (in a, Op. 41/1) and Schubert (in E-flat, D. 87). "The performance had the audience spellbound" (Washington Post).

To conclude this season of Doheny Soirées, "one of the outstanding violinists of his generation" (New York Times) will be joined by a pianist possessing "an exceptionally clean technique with virtuosity to spare" (Washington Post). After all, "when you're named after one of the biggest constellations in the night sky, the pressure is on to display a little star power — and the young pianist Orion Weiss [does] exactly that" (Washington Post). Hadelich's "tremendous technical fluency…even poetic communication" (New York Times) will enliven violin sonatas by Beethoven (No. 4 in a, Op. 23), Brahms (No. 2 in A, Op. 100), Debussy (in g, L. 140) and Ysaÿe (Sonata No. 6 in E) — along with John Adams' jaunty Road Movies. "The essence of [his] playing is beauty: reveling in the myriad ways of making a phrase come alive on the violin, delivering the musical message with no technical impediments whatsoever, and thereby revealing something from a plane beyond ours" (Washington Post)
