Golub-Kaplan-Carr Trio
AUGUST 4, 1996

Wonderful things often come in threes: wishes, musketeers, wise men, and bears. The same holds especially true in music. Chamber trios offer us a perfection of balance and interplay found nowhere else. This week on Saint Paul Sunday, the Golub-Kaplan-Carr Trio, true masters of the form, will perform a trio of trios: works by Beethoven, Dvorák, and Debussy. Listen in this week to Saint Paul Sunday and discover again the musical magic of three.

The King's Noyse
AUGUST 11, 1996

Have yourself a Tuscan romance this week on Saint Paul Sunday when host Bill McGlaughlin welcomes the King's Noyse. This extraordinary "voice and violin band" will perform Italian dance, court, and country music from the early 17th century. Their program includes works by such composers as Trabaci, Monteverdi, Zanetti and Gesualdo, among others, each played with delightful virtuosity on a variety of instruments of the period.

Jorja Fleezanis, violin; Anthony Ross, cello; Edgar Meyer, doublebass
AUGUST 18, 1996

In music as in the world, we find variations on the same marvelous patterns. This week, Saint Paul Sunday explores the bond among three similar yet unmistakably distinct instruments: the violin, cello, and doublebass. Jorja Fleezanis and Tony Ross, concertmaster and principal cellist of the Minnesota Orchestra, along with doublebass virtuoso Edgar Meyer, will perform sonatas by Handel and Ravel, a Rossini duet, and a trio composed by Meyer himself. The combinations, in the hands of three such extraordinary artists, will illuminate every facet of these stringed jewels.
