Music Tonight: Amsterdam Klavier Trio

If you haven't any music plans for tonight, but a sudden craving, you might want to go to La Maison Française for a performance of the Amsterdam Klavier Trio (most recently reviewed at the Corcoran in January - this time with their regular pianist, Klára Würtz) who will present the Mozart B-flat, Mendelssohn's second, and Ravel's trio. I missed their concert at the Lyceum on Friday, but after just hearing them in the Mozart-Mendelssohn-Ravel program on Saturday I recommend this concert even more warmly than I did their Lyceum concert. Klára Würtz really is a marvelous pianist who can get great beauty even from lesser pianos. No wonder she has been invited to play alongside Brendel and Pollini in the Salzburger Festspiele recital series. La Maison Française will be the usual gracious host (that's code for "good wine afterwards"); tickets are $20 - although you'll want to shoot an e-mail to culturel.washington-amba[AT]diplomatie[dot]gouv[dot]fr before you go.
