Events this week

Finisterra Trio:  Seattle's award winning piano trio will be performing at Highline Community College in South King County on Tuesday.  You might recall from earlier posts that this trio is making headway in the musical world, garnering praise from folks like Ned Rorem (and myself), and playing and recording the interesting trios of American composer Daron Hagen.  Go if you can.    

Yevgeny Sudbin: Opens the University of Washington's President's Piano Series this Wednesday at Meaney Hall.  I'll be at this one.  Sudbin has been wowing audiences with his interpretations of Scarlatti and Scriabin.  His recent recording on BIS of Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto is well worth the $20.  Another disk worth investigating is his recording of the Rachmaninoff second sonata.  Its a captivating recording of one of the more challenging sonatas out there.     

Onyx Chamber Players: Take their chamber music prowess to St, Mark's Episcopal Cathedral with a performance of Mozart's E Flat Piano Quartet.

Seattle Opera Young Artists:  Preview Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti this Thursday at City Hall.  Best part about this one is the price tag - free!
