The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio
Franklin Cohen, clarinet
Richard King, French horn

After four decades of success the world over, the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio continues to dazzle audiences and critics alike with its performances. Since making their debut at the White House for President Carter's Inauguration in January 1977, pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson have set the standard for performance of the piano trio literature, consistently bringing technical mastery, expressive depth and magnetism to the concert stage. The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio balances the careers of three internationally-acclaimed soloists while making annual appearances at many of the world's major concert halls, commissioning spectacular new works, and maintaining an active recording agenda. Celebrations of the Trio's 2016-17 40th Anniversary season include a repeat of their White House program with a specially commissioned opening work by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ellen Zwilich, complete Beethoven cycles at Boston's Gardner Museum and The Kennedy Center in Washington DC and much more.

For this program the Trio is joined by two long-time principals of the Cleveland Orchestra, clarinetist Franklin Cohen and French horn player Richard King.
“It’s a rare luxury to hear music-making of such integrity and joy, and an equally rare privilege to be party to such an intimate musical conversation.” –American Record Guide
