SAINT PAUL SUNDAY APPEARANCES
Sequenza is a blending of soloists, featuring three of the finest musicians on the concert stage -- pianist Yael Weiss, violinist Mark Kaplan and cellist Colin Carr. The ensemble looks toward the future while paying tribute to three centuries of masterworks, with great performances exploring the repertoire from the first piano trios to exciting newly commissioned works. Their innovative programming offers not only piano trios, but options on mixed repertoire for other instrumental combinations -- both from within the group and with the addition of guest artists on special programs.
The remarkable Israeli-born pianist Yael Weiss joins Kaplan and Carr, following the untimely death of pianist David Golub, of the group's predecessor, the internationally renowned Golub-Kaplan-Carr Trio. While still making time for their independent careers as soloists and chamber musicians, the three Sequenza members joined forces and formed the new ensemble in 2001. Sequenza has been uniformly praised for imaginative programming and exciting performances. The ensemble also offers residencies, providing information and inspiration through concert performances, master classers and private pedagogy.
