At 7PM on Sunday November 20th Quadra Cultural Committee will welcome Trio'86, an ensemble of clarinet, viola and piano to the Quadra Community Centre for the first classical music recital of the season. This unusual grouping of instruments was first brought together by Mozart in his "Kegelstatt" Trio K498 in 1786. Trio members for this occasion are clarinettist Krysta Martynes, violist Pemi Paull, and pianist Marc Wieser, accomplished musicians based in Montreal. Their program will include the original Mozart Trio and other works by composers who were inspired to write for this combination of instruments, namely Robert Schumann, Max Bruch, the modern Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag, and Canadian composer Jerry Semchyshyn. This concert promises to be an unusual and exciting program performed by a group of extremely talented artists. Tickets are available in advance for $17 from Quadra Crafts in Heriot Bay, Hummingbird Office and Art Supply in Quathiaski Cove, the Music Plant in Campbell River; and for $20 at the door. Students under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult. For further information, call 250-285-3560.
