Beaux Arts TrioGold Standard: Today, as it has for over half a century, the Beaux Arts Trio draws audiences into profound and delightful musical encounters. This week on Saint Paul Sunday, founding pianist Menahem Pressler joins his two celebrated younger colleagues, violinist Daniel Hope and cellist Antonio Meneses, for a program that surveys music of four works that have had special meaning for the trio and its many fans. We'll hear music from Mendelssohn's first and Shostakovich's second trios, as well as two other beloved pinnacles of the form: Beethoven's "Archduke" and Dvořák's "Dumky" trios. Along the way we'll also get personal glimpses of the Beaux Arts Trio past, present, and future.
