The Paris Piano Trio
January 6, 2002
This week on Saint Paul Sunday, Bill McGlaughlin welcomes the Paris Piano Trio, three great French soloists who have been connected by their love of chamber music since they were prize-winning teen-agers at the Paris Conservatory. In the decades since, their radiant ensemble music-making and rapport have captivated audiences around the world. This week they'll bring us music of Haydn, Schubert, and a former director of their revered alma mater, Gabriel Fauré.
Franz Joseph Haydn: Trio in C major, Hob. XV: 27
Franz Schubert: "Notturno"
Gabriel Fauré: Trio in d minor, Op. 120
Michala Petri, recorder; Lars Hannibal, guitar
January 13, 2002
"Conversation, companionship, and communication" are necessary for an engaging musical alliance, according to this week's guests on Saint Paul Sunday. Virtuoso recorder player Michala Petri is joined by her husband, guitarist Lars Hannibal, with a wonderful sampler of the old and the new that illustrates the point beautifully. The duo is known for its passion for playing, world-class musicianship and the artists' warm, inviting musical ensemble. We'll hear a sonata by Handel, a Spanish gypsy air originally written for violin, a Norwegian Fantasy by Lalo and "Twilight Dialogue," a work created for Michala Petri by Danish composer Per Nørgård. It's a winning combination that's not to be missed.
George Frederick Handel (arr. Hannibal): Sonata in Bb major
Jules Massenet (arr. Hannibal): Meditation (from Thais)
Pablo de Sarasate (arr. Hannibal): Zigeunerweisen ("Gypsy Airs"), Op. 20
Per Norgård: Twilight Dialogue
Edouard Lalo (arr. Hannibal): Fantasie Norwégienne

Pamela Frank, violin; Claude Frank, piano
January 20, 2002
Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms each come wholly alive under the touch of a father and daughter duo this week on Saint Paul Sunday. Legendary pianist Claude Frank joins the acclaimed violinist Pamela Frank for what Bill McGlaughlin rightly calls some "exalted music-making." We'll hear the haunting aria-like Largo from Bach's fourth violin sonata and two extraordinarily poignant late sonatas by Beethoven and Brahms. The Franks' incandescent performances reveal the lyrical power shared by all three composers, an ongoing tradition the duo celebrates and expands.
Johann Sebastian Bach: Sonata No. 4 in c minor, BWV 1017
Ludwig van Beethoven: Sonata No. 10 in G major, Op. 96
Johannes Brahms: Sonata No. 3 in d minor, Op. 108
