This powerhouse trio brings together some familiar faces — Inon Barnatan was the featured piano soloist with the New York Philharmonic last fall, Anthony McGill is the New York Philharmonic’s principal clarinetist, and MacArthur “Genius” Grant winner Alisa Weilerstein has performed on both the Choral Union Series and the Chamber Arts Series in recent years

This concert of beloved clarinet trios includes a new work by Joseph Hallman, a prolific young composer based in Philadelphia, which was co-commissioned by UMS as part of the Music Accord commissioning consortium. The performance also includes Beethoven’s playful Clarinet Trio in B-flat and Brahms’s Clarinet Trio, written near the end of his career and prompting a musicologist friend to proclaim that “it is as though the instruments are in love with each other.”

PROGRAM

Beethoven Clarinet Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 11
Hallman short stories (UMS co-commission)
Brahms Clarinet Trio in a minor, Op. 114
