At its best, chamber music is a conversation between friends, and
nowhere is that more apparent than within the piano trio genre, grand
canvases filled with intimate expression. Join violinist Robyn
Bollinger, cellist Rafael Popper-Keizer, and pianist Vivian Choi for a
Chameleon Up Close recital exploring these themes. Clara Schumann’s
under-appreciated gem – her g minor Piano Trio – embodies the drama of
the Romantic era with transparency and grace. Joan Tower’s Big Sky, is
inspired by the expansive beauty of the Andes, and Schubert, at the end
of his life, stretches to the horizon with a monument of the repertoire,
the Piano Trio No. 2 in E-flat Major, Op. 100, D. 929.

The Boston Globe noted that Ms. Bollinger’s “performance seemed to
catch fire… at the service of bold musical expression.” The New York
Times praised Mr. Popper-Keizer as “imaginative and eloquent,” and The
Boston Musical Intelligencer hailed “Choi gave it a sparkling
performance, full of poise and charm.”

The performance will take place in Mary Norton Hall at Old South
Church, transformed into an intimate cabaret setting with table seating
and refreshments. Tickets are $49, with $5 off for students and seniors.
