Anthony Marwood, violin; Martin Fröst, clarinet; Marc-André Hamelin, piano
Monday, April 28, 2014
This dream team of charismatic and versatile artists come together to present a brilliant program of duos and trios, anchored by the great Bartók Contrasts. Anthony Marwood’s “golden tone and sure-fire musicianship” (Washington Post) are superbly met by Martin Fröst’s pushing-the-limits showmanship and Marc-André Hamelin’s intelligent virtuosity. Their combined gifts of taste, warmth and humor will doubtless ignite their program with a rare excitement and spontaneity that has grown out of a delightful series of summer festival collaborations.
