The Washington and Lee University Concert Guild will present the Zukerman Trio on Jan. 23, at 3 p.m. in the Wilson Concert Hall. Tickets are required and may be purchased online.

The concert will feature two movements from the unique “Frei aber einsam” Sonata, a four-movement work for violin and piano that was a collaboration among composers Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Schumann’s student, Albert Dietrich. Brahms’ “Piano Trio No. 3 in C Minor” will round out the program’s first half. Following the intermission, the second half will include Schubert’s “Piano Trio No. 1 in B-flat Major.”

A prodigious talent recognized worldwide for his artistry, Pinchas Zukerman (violinist) has inspired young musicians throughout his adult life. In a continuing effort to motivate future generations of musicians through education and outreach, the renowned artist teamed up in 2002 with four protégés to form a string quintet called the Zukerman Chamber Players. The ensemble amassed an impressive international touring schedule, with close to 200 hundred concerts and four discs on the CBC, Altara and Sony labels.

In 2011, Zukerman joined cellist Amanda Forsyth and pianist Angela Cheng to offer trio repertoire as an alternative to the quintet works with the Zukerman Chamber Players. In addition to piano trios by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Dvorak and Shostakovich, programs often include duo performances. The trio has traveled around the world to perform at major festivals and renowned venues. Pianist Shai Wosner began performing with Zukerman and Forsyth in 2020. The 2021-22 season includes three U. S. tours, engagements in Banff and Montreal, Canada, and a tour of China in May 2022.
