The concert includes Debussy’s early piano trio, evoking the carefree salons of Paris in 1880, as well as Ravel’s masterfully poignant and virtuosic trio, written during the turmoil of WWI when he surveyed the horrors of war as an ambulance driver. Pianist Gwendolyn Mok, renowned Ravel scholar and interpreter will perform selections from Ravel’s “Miroirs” which she has recorded, while Craig Reiss and Thalia Moore will present several delightful musical bon-bons including the “Blues” from Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Piano and Faure’s soaring “Elegie.”
