The Clavier Trio To Return in Concert
The Clavier Trio features violinist and UTD faculty member Arkady Fomin, a member of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and artistic director of the New Conservatory of Dallas, cellist Peter Steffens, also of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and pianist David Korevaar, a member of the Prometheus Piano Quartet and professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
The chamber music program will feature a work by American composer Lowell Liebermann, Trio Op. 32; music by Beethoven, Trio Op. 70 No. 1, nicknamed "Ghost"; and Felix Mendelssohn's Trio Op. 66 in C minor.
We are very excited to have Arkady Fomin and the Clavier Trio in residence at the University of Texas at Dallas as a part of our on-going commitment to excellence in both our performing arts season and our instructional program in the arts, said Kathryn Evans, associate dean of UTDs School of Arts and Humanities. Mr. Fomin has been a critical part of the growth of the instrumental program at UTD. In addition to conducting the UTD Camerata, he will also sponsor two concerts of young artists this spring from the Conservatory. It is inspirational to watch these talented young people attend concerts here and also perform themselves."
In addition to appearing in the concert on Nov. 9, Fomin will perform again at UTD next March in Mostly Duos with Barbara Theim, cello, and David Korevaar, piano, in a concert of the music of Chopin, Kodaly, Martinu and Brahms. That concert will be at 8 p.m. on March 1 in the Jonsson Performance Hall (JO 2.604). The Clavier Trio will perform again at UTD on April 4 at 7:30 p.m. in the UTD Conference Center in a program titled Russian Passion featuring Shostakovich's Trio Op. 67 in E minor and Tchaikovsky's Trio Op. 50 in A minor.
Fomin has been instrumental in bringing
fresh talent from the Metroplex to the communitys attention though his New Conservatory of
Dallas, which will host two concerts next spring in the UTD Jonsson Performance Hall (JO 2.604).
Violinist Chloe Trevor will perform on March 21 at 3 p.m., and Next Generation, a showcase
of the Conservatorys best young musicians, will be presented on April 18 at 6 p.m.
