Trio Combray performs Sunday December 10th at the TCA

Friend of TPA and Haydn’s Ferry Chamber Music impresario Catherine Hayden wrote to me about a wonderful concert Sunday.  Because it is after the deadline for submitting concert reviews, it may be used to review for no penalty if students’ parents request an extension.

Here’s what Mrs. Hayden said:

Please tell your students about Trio Combray playing a Proust-inspired program this Sunday, December 10th at the Tempe Center for the Arts at 2:30pm. First prize winner of the Dino Ciani Competition, pianist Jeffrey Swann formed the trio with internationally acclaimed cellist Jeffrey Solow and violinist Gregory Fulkerson, first prize winner of the International American Music Competition sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation. Their program is inspired by music from Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past. They will play:

  • Ernest Adler’s Fantasy from “Lohengrin”
  • Claude Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano
  • Debussy’s Sonata for Violin and Piano
  • Guillaume Lekeu’s Piano Trio in C minor

In keeping with the theme we will serve petite madeleines at the reception following the concert.  Jeffrey Swann, a Proust scholar, will tell us how the music connects to the book.  I do hope you and your students can join us for this beautiful and most interesting performance.  For tickets, please call the TCA box office on 480-350-2822 or follow the link on the website below.  Student tickets are $10 and accompanying adults and all school staff pay the subscription price of $24 by quoting “charter school.”
