Navarro Trio Programs Works By Haydn, Dvorak and Arensky

The starting time of this concert has been moved from 2 pm to 3 pm to accommodate a Lawn event with Weill Hall.

The Navarro Trio, Sonoma State University’s chamber artists-in-residence, will present their first recital of the 2015-16 season on October 4 at 3 pm in Schroeder Hall. They will perform two staples of the piano trio repertoire, Haydn’s Trio in B-flat No. 34 and Dvorak’s “Dumky,” and a late Russian-Romantic work, Trio No. 2 in F minor by Anton Arensky.
“Haydn wrote six books of trios,” said pianist and co-founder Marilyn Thompson. “The one we’re doing has a charming second movement that begins with the left hand– all alone. It’s very sweet.”  Thompson will be joined by co-founder and cellist Jill Brindel and violinist Victor Romasevich.

Brindel recently joined the Sonoma State faculty as cello instructor and has played cello with the San Francisco Symphony since 1980. Romasevich joined the SFS in 1990 as a violist and moved to the first violin section in 1992. Navarro Trio will return to Schroeder on February 21 and April 3, each at 2 pm.

Tickets are $8, parking included, and concerts are free of charge to SSU students with ID.   

Schroeder Hall is located at Sonoma State’s Green Music Center, two miles east of Highway 101 on Rohnert Park Expressway, near the intersection with Petaluma Hill Road.
