Max Tan and Friends: Schumann and Chausson Piano Trios

Sat, August 29, 2020 8:00 PM, EDT

Welcome back to apartment 4D where we've brought to you seven different violin-piano duo recital programs!

As Mackenzie travels for concerts in Finland, I'm happy to present piano trios with two incredible friends. Introducing: Marisa Gupta, a pianist based in Paris who concertizes throughout Europe and the United States, and Coleman Itzkoff, a cellist based in New York engaged in many solo and chamber music concerts who will start his Artist Diploma at Juilliard this fall!

This program will feature the Schumann Six Canonic Studies for Organ, op. 56, and the Chausson Piano Trio, op. 3. The Schumann op.56 has been transcribed for many different instrumentations and will be first on this program. This arrangement by Theodor Kirchner for piano trio is an under-programmed gem; the work has enchanted countless composers including Debussy, Bizet, and others. The Chausson Piano Trio is a beauty of its own. Chausson's works, although sounding French, are often described as a mix of Franck and Wagner. This luscious and provocative piece is a hearty experience for the ears, not to be missed!

Continuing the tradition of presenting beautiful repertoire that is not traditionally programmed, I hope you will join us as we continue our musical broadcasting from New York. Mackenzie will be returning in September and we intend to continue our series of livestreams into the fall!
See you soon.
Max (and Mackenzie from across the Atlantic)

Our first groupmuse. What an experience, to know the musicians were together in the flesh, playing live for us! The Schumann was transcendently beautiful. Thank you so much.
