The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the Kandinsky Trio in concert with guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel and bassonist Paul Langosch on Saturday, November 5, 2016.
The Kandinsky Trio is celebrating one of the longest and most successful artist residencies in the United States: performing over 25 years and over a thousand concerts of high caliber chamber music in the U.S., Europe, and Canada, including New York (Miller Theater and Merkin Hall), Washington (The Kennedy Center), Atlanta (Spivey Hall), Oklahoma City, Tampa (Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center), Portland, Charleston, San Francisco, Banff, Bratislava, Budapest, Vienna, and Zagreb. The Kandinsky Trio has also been heard at such venues as the Interlochen Festival, the Concert Society at Maryland, the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville, Cincinnati’s Aronoff Center, and the Center for the Arts at Penn State. The trio is based in Salem, VA.
Its recordings are aired regularly on Boston’s WGBH, Chicago’s WFMT, and the Maine, Georgia, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Minnesota Public Radio Networks. Live performances have been broadcast on the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour, numerous times on National Public Radio’s Performance Today, and WNYC’s Around New York.
Their CD, In Foreign Lands (Brioso), released in 2003, was selected by WNED (Buffalo and Toronto) as one of the best CDs of the year, and London’s Music and Vision dubbed it “one of the year’s best chamber music recordings.” The Charleston Post and Courier named the Kandinskys “a trio of stunning talent” after their appearance on the 2008 Spotlight Series at Piccolo Spoleto.
Described as “spirited and persuasive,” American Record Guide, and “virtuosity, with spine-tingling precision,” Cincinnati Enquirer, the Trio draws in new audiences with both its passionate performances of masterworks and innovative ideas in re-defining chamber music.
Tickets are available at the Moss Arts Center Box Office in person Monday-Friday from 10 am - 6 pm and by phone at 540-231-5300.
