Luther College Piano Quartet will present a program of piano quartets and a piano trio on Saturday, March 17, at 4 p.m. in Luther's Noble Recital Hall of the Jenson-Noble Hall of Music. The program will feature works by Gustav Mahler, Paul Schoenfield, and Schumann.
The performance is open to the public with no charge for admission.
The concert will open with an early work by Gustav Mahler, the dramatic one-movement "Piano Quartet in A minor." Paul Schoenfield’s "Café Music for Piano" trio will follow. A contemporary American composer, Schoenfield’s musical style is a mix of classical, jazz, and popular American music. The program will conclude with the famous Robert Schumann Piano Quartet in E–flat Major, Op. 47.
The Luther College Piano Quartet, now in its 10th year, consists of Luther artists Igor Kalnin, violin; Spencer Martin, viola; Philip Borter, cello, and Miko Kominami, piano. The ensemble has performed throughout the Midwest, and recorded a CD for the Luther College sesquicentennial.
