CHAMBER SOLOISTS OF DETROIT
with violinist Fabiola Kim, cellist Amir Eldan and pianist Pauline Martin
Saturday, March 26th @ 8:00 PM
This concert is made possible with generous support from Salon Series Genre Underwriters,
Maurice & Linda Binkow.
KCH’s Salon Series celebrates classical music in an intimate setting that is reminiscent of the 19th century style salon or parlour concerts – a concert style which would have been entirely familiar to composers like Schubert, Schumann, Chopin and Liszt, and which offers audiences an opportunity to experience world-class chamber music in a living room setting.
Enjoy a Salon Series evening of elegance, warmth and wit with these outstanding musicians in the intimate setting of Kerrytown Concert House! Featuring a varied program of piano trios by Mozart (K. 496 in G), Brahms (Op. 101 in c minor) and Jean Francaix, topped off with CSD’s signature talkback – Just Between Us! – a welcome opportunity for the artists to engage with audience members from the stage.
