We are excited to announce that guest violinist Jeremy Bell, always a favourite, returns for Consortium’s second live concert of 2022, to be held on Saturday, May 14, 8 pm, at Trinity United Church, Thunder Bay. He will join forces with two fine local musicians, pianist Evgeny Chugunov and cellist Marc Palmquist, as we move once more into the much-loved realm of Romanticism. Robert Schumann’s Piano Trio No. 3, Op. 110 in G minor (written in 1851) and Anton Arensky’s Piano Trio No. 1, Op. 32 in D minor (from 1894) will sweep you away with their mix of rhapsody and lyricism.
The concert’s chosen genre, the piano trio, has all three instruments participating fully and equally, sharing material, although the piano has the most demanding part. Both works are quintessentially romantic and deeply expressive, with soaring, expansive melodies and moments of passionate intensity, along with some lighter, gentler interludes. Your physical presence will mean so much to the performers, energizing them!
