UW-Green Bay Music presents guest recital featuring strings, piano trio
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will host the nationally renowned Moët Trio, featuring violin, cello and piano, during a guest recital at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15 in Fort Howard Hall at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
The trio, consisting of violinist Yuri Namkung, cellist Yves Dharamraj and pianist Michael Mizrahi, has performed at major venues across North America, including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; Jordan Hall and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston; Barge Music and Flushing Town Hall in New York; the United States Embassy to Canada; and the Virginia Arts Festival. The group formed in 2005 and quickly was invited to prestigious artistic residencies across North America.
The Moët Trio will perform works that span centuries, starting with “Piano Trio in E Major Hob. XV: 28,” by Franz Joseph Haydn. Next up, the group will play “Trio élégiaque No. 1 in G minor, Op. post,” by Sergei Rachmaninoff, followed by “Piano Trio (2003),” a piece by contemporary classical composer Jennifer Higdon. After a brief intermission, the trio will close with “Piano Trio in A Minor,” by Maurice Ravel.
UW-Green Bay is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The Feb. 15 recital, the 24th concert of the 2011-12 season, is free and open to the public.
