What's Interesting

  • Goethe pronounced Mendelssohn a wunderkind—he should know, early in life he'd witnessed the spectacle of a young Mozart. Such talent shines forth in the popular Piano Trio No. 1.
  • Wonder too at the Piano Trio of the then-18-year-old Debussy, "indisputably one of the grand originals...a visionary who dreamed a new world of sound and then brought it into being." (New York Times)
  • CSO Principal Viola Christian Colberg presents his own composition, premiered this year at the International Viola Congress in Los Angeles.
